MGCfutures Bursaries exist to support theatre practitioners to develop their careers in the industry.
The third round of MGCfutures' Bursary Programme is now open for applications. We are interested in how we can help you develop your career in the industry. In the past, bursaries have been used for all sorts of projects, for example:
Read about how MGCfutures has supported our year one and two recipients here or watch the video below.
Additionally, we have partnered with the Gate Theatre to offer a £2500 bursary for a BAME designer to work as design assistant on a show in the Gate’s new season. As well as working full time on a show at the Gate, the bursary recipient will receive mentoring and support from the Gate’s Associate Director, Anthony Simpson-Pike and their Associate Artist Rosie Elnile. The bursary recipient will also receive support through a career clinic workshop and help in making connections with other designers whose work they admire. Finally, the design assistant will become a Gate Theatre Alumni Artist after the project, with access to all of the ensuing support that brings, as well as further mentorship from MGCfutures. If you would like to be considered for this Bursary please indicate this clearly on the application form.
Bursaries are from £500 up to £5,000. To apply please complete and submit the form here.
To be successful, you need to be working in the industry and be able to demonstrate commitment and passion to your chosen career. Please submit your application before 12 noon on Monday 6 August 2018. Applications will be processed through August and September.
Please note, bursaries are not available to support training or as commercial investments in productions.
