News Image
The Royal Television Society (RTS) has announced the 20 individuals who will receive bursaries as part of its inaugural undergraduate bursary scheme.

The scheme, with funding totalling £60,000, aims to widen participation in media and related industries and assist talented people who need financial support.
Theresa Wise, RTS CEO, said: "Great talent can be lost without the right support. We're committed to finding, funding and nurturing the next generation and through the RTS Undergraduate Bursary Scheme I am convinced that we can make a critical contribution.
"The response to our inaugural bursary scheme has been fantastic and following an exacting selection process I'm excited to announce the first beneficiaries – all of whom stood-out and demonstrated ambition and commitment to learning. We look forward to following their future career achievements." 
Graeme Thompson, Chair of the RTS Education Committee and Dean of Arts, Design and Media at Sunderland University, added: "More than ever before there are talented individuals who, without additional financial support, would be unable to go to university.
"The RTS Undergraduate Bursary Scheme is a real opportunity to gain first class support and funding. The calibre of applicants has been outstanding and I look forward to seeing these recipients lay the foundations of their future careers."
Each recipient will get £3,000 (£1,000 per year) to assist with their studies. In addition, the beneficiary will receive mentoring, free membership of The Hospital Club and the RTS while studying and one year's free membership of the RTS after they graduate.
Those receiving grants include: Hazera Bibi, Rachel Brown, Emma Duncan, Sandy Galbraith, Jennifer Gargett, Hannah Hook, Adam Mann, Dean Massey, Jonas Lowuya Mondua, Oreoluwa Olukoga, Suzanne Pearson, Jacob Power, Wesley Sethi, Kyle Shiels, Tom Stone, Ophelia Taylor, Chloe Thomas, Richard Walker, Florence Watson and Emma Wheeler.
The recipients were selected by a panel of industry professionals following an open call to students applying for eligible UK courses.
