Funding Opportunity

The LET Bursary

The LET Bursary is a joint initiative from Les Enfants Terribles and WildChild to help support emerging talent through a 3-year undergraduate course plus their first year as a professional actor. Each year, we’ll be selecting an aspiring actor, from a background currently underrepresented in the industry, to join the initiative and help them discover the tools they need to succeed.

The LET Bursary includes:

- 1-2-1 mentorship from an established industry professional

- £1,500 per year (£4,500 total) towards your training fees

- Support from the Les Enfants Terribles team

- Headshots with a top theatre photographer

- Joining the network of previous recipients

- Opportunities to meet industry professionals to grow your career prospects

Applications close at midday on Monday 1st August.
