“It’s so important we encourage and support people from under-represented backgrounds to pursue a career in film and television if that’s what they dream of doing. Your background, race, religion or disability should not be a barrier and this scholarship will hopefully give someone a brilliant opportunity to start their acting career”
"This scholarship from YAFTA is a fantastic chance for someone who aspires to have a career in the Film and TV industry but feel it’s not a sector open to them. I’m proof there is so much opportunity and potential out there, you’ve just got to believe and go for it."
