About the scholarship

The University of Bradford is delighted to be able to offer the below scholarships:

  • Three £5,000 scholarships for qualified, full time international applicants to the MA Filmmaking
  • Five £2,000 scholarships for qualified full time home applicants to the MA Filmmaking

These scholarships support filmmakers in addressing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through Bradford’s UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations) Creative City of Film designation. The scholarship is designed to develop greater understanding of the work of UNESCO across the world and how filmmakers might respond to this.

Bradford is the world’s first UNESCO City of Film. This permanent title bestows international recognition on Bradford as a world centre for film because of the city’s rich film heritage, its inspirational movie locations and its many celebrations of the moving image through the city’s film festivals, filmed related events and unique approach to learning about film and learning with film. The offices of Bradford City of Film sit within the School of Media Design and Technology who deliver the programme.
