Funding Opportunity

Future Voices Scholarship Programme

A package of financial and industry support to welcome talented UK undergraduates from Black, Asian, Gypsy, Traveller and ethnically diverse backgrounds to our creative community. This support comprises a bursary of £1,200 per year for three years of the programme, plus targeted mentoring.

The creative industries have stories at their core. We're passionate about supporting ethnically diverse stories to be given a chance to thrive at York. This scholarship was set up to encourage people from a range of cultural backgrounds who wouldn't normally think of York as a place for them.

The awards are designed to ease the financial burden of study. The funds can be used in any way that will assist you practically on the course – including travel, accommodation and living expenses.

The awards also provide mentoring support to help increase opportunities, preparing you for a successful career in the creative industries. Your mentor will meet you regularly, help shape your development and offer advice throughout your degree. We'll also have ‘Future Voices Scholarship’ events where recipients can meet and network with each other.
