The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) recently announced the students who'll receive scholarships to study through BAFTA scholarship programs in the U.K., Los Angeles and New York.

Three U.K. students received the Prince William Scholarships in Film, Television and Games. The scholarships—an integral element of Warner Bros. Creative Talent, Warner Bros.’ investment in U.K. creative industries’ skills and training—are awarded in the name of HRH The Duke of Cambridge in his role as President of BAFTA.

This year's Prince William scholars are Gordon Napier, from Fort William in Scotland; Matilda Ibini, from Hackney in London; and Elizabeth Mercuri from Chesterfield in Derbyshire. Each will receive up to £10,000 for postgraduate coursework—funded by Warner Bros.—as well as receiving a short funded-work placement within the Warner Bros. group of companies in the U.K. and access to Warner Bros. mentors.
