SLX have announced the launch of their new Student Bursary Scheme aimed at second and third year lighting design, technical and event management students across England and Wales. It provides five successful candidates with equipment, support and opportunities throughout the academic year.
SLX have supported and sponsored students in many ways througout their history, employing student casuals, offering sponsorships and apprenticeships across the business.
Jo Sunners, Business Development Manager at SLX, describes the inspiration behind the scheme: “We’ve decided after a few months of consulting with drama schools and industry professionals to launch a new way of supporting the next generation of talent in our industry, something myself and SLX are extremely passionate about. I’m really excited to work with and support the successful applicants in the coming months.”
The bursary will be awarded annually going forward and will help the students who can best display a passion, dedication and enthusiasm for the industry, to grow their network and increase the tools at their fingertips.
Applications are already open for the bursary and the deadline is 11th October, after interviews of the shortlisted students have taken place, we will announce the recipients.
The application form is available at www.SLX.co.uk.
