RTS names scholarship holders of the Bachelor scholarships 2022 | News – IBC365 | Episode Movies

The prestigious RTS scholarship programs support young people from low-income backgrounds who are interested in working in the television industry, from production or related fields to technical roles.

For 2022, a total of 45 scholarships were awarded in the areas of TV production and journalism as well as the newly created Digital Innovation Bursary. The new Digital Innovation Bursary aims to support students specifically in the digital space who push boundaries and innovate, and for 2022, eight students have received the inaugural scholarship.

The total number of scholarships awarded this year is a record high since 2014, thanks to generous support for the programs from across the industry. Two grantees will be supported by the Steve Hewlett Memorial Fund this year, and STV continues its significant support, providing 10 of the 2022 grants.

New this year is the Hartswood Films-sponsored Beryl Vertue Scholarship, which aims to commemorate Beryl Vertue’s career in the media industry by annually supporting a talented and dedicated television production fellow for the duration of their studies. The grantee is selected each year by Beryl’s daughters Sue and Debbie Vertue from among the highest scoring applicants for the RTS Television Production and Journalism Grant.

Attending 29 universities and institutions across the UK, successful recipients will receive £1,000 a year to support their expenses and living expenses, as well as a free RTS membership during their studies, with an extra year after graduation. In its senior year, the RTS will also aim to establish mentoring opportunities that will match each award winner with one of their industry members. The Steve Hewlett Scholar receives £2,000 a year from the Steve Hewlett Memorial Fund, which is supported by RTS and The Media Society, along with the Beryl Vertue Scholar, who also receives £2,000 a year.

The Television Production and Broadcast Journalism Fellowship recipients are: Ethan Ward, Samira Chowdhury, Rachael Bowie, Nicholas Baynton, Kiera Miller, Benjamin Killackey, Saffron Cave, Grace Hynds, Andrew Dean, Glodi Cuba-Cuba, Danielle Russell, George Wincott, Kiah-Jay Stevens, Elizabeth Adejumo, Muhammad Ali, Keighra Ashton, Philip McKeever, Niamh Quirke, Bethany Barr, Nathan Edgar, Callum Vidgen, Nhu Huynh, Sebastian Ackland, and Poppy Marr.

The following students will receive a scholarship for digital innovation: Tameem Hussain, Ireneusz Minkiewicz, Mollie Stratton, Zayed Ahmed, Saqib Ahmed, Cassandra Edwards, Haseena Iqbal and David Anley.

As a continuation of his generous support, ten of this year’s grants were funded by STV including: Samantha MacAlister, Conor Sullivan, Natalino De Martino, Sophie Reid, Ione Gildroy, Margareta Cilinska, Andrew McFarlane, Peter McGachy, Abbie Freeman and Andrew Moffat Tierney.

This year the Steve Hewlett Memorial Fund grantees are: Catriona Walsh and Liubov Sliusareva.

The recipient of this year’s Beryl Vertue Scholarship is: Saleem Miah.

Theresa Wise, CEO of RTS, said: “Year after year, RTS grantees continue to do amazing work and advance our industry through their creativity and innovation. This year’s grantees are no different and we are excited to recognize their achievements while also providing them with the industry support they need as they journey towards a career in television.”

Sue and Debbie Vertue of Hartswood Films said: “We are honored to continue our mother’s legacy and passion for the television industry by supporting the RTS grant program. Beryl has been a huge advocate for supporting the next generation of television production talent, so awarding a grant on her behalf is a fitting tribute. The recipients of this year’s grants have demonstrated that there is a bright future ahead for the television industry and it is a privilege to be able to help them reach their full potential.”

To date, the RTS has invested over £1 million in the scheme, awarding a total of almost 300 grants and supporting researchers throughout their education. Donations to support the program from All3media, Steve Hewlett Fund, Hartswood Films, STV, ITV Daytime and YouView have helped the program continue to grow and thrive, with over 80% of those graduating from the first five years of admission working in television or related industries.
