TV industry scholarship deadline
The David Lyle Foundation has confirmed 15 November 2019 as the deadline for applications for its inaugural annual scholarship.
The industry-wide, not-for-profit organisation helps young executives to build successful careers in the international television business.
The foundation awards two annual scholarships, each valued at US$10,000, to promising young entertainment-industry executives.
The successful candidates will receive a one-year programme of education and development designed to fast-track their understanding of the global television content business.
This includes subscriptions to key trade publications and organisations, as well as all-access passes to the world’s leading content industry events, worth in excess of US$5,000.
The David Lyle Foundation has appointed an initial advisory board of executives from across the television business, which will choose from a shortlist of 10 candidates. The winners will be announced on 29 November 2019.
