Sky announces TV production scholarship with IADT
Sky has announced details of a new Sky Academy TV Scholarship for MA students of Broadcast Production offered by The National Film School at the Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) from September.
The scholarship will be offered by Sky, supported by The Royal Television Society, to individuals who may not otherwise have the financial means to support themselves through further study, or may not have considered a career in the media for financial reasons.
Managing director of Sky Ireland, JD Buckley, said: “Part of our commitment to developing homegrown content is about investing in the next generation of production talent. Fundamental to this is ensuring everyone, regardless of background, has the opportunity to get a start in the industry. We are therefore delighted to partner with The National Film School at IADT to offer this scholarship to a deserving young person.”
The MA in Broadcast Production at IADT teaches skills in studio production techniques; editorial and scriptwriting; single and multi-camera operation; microphone and sound recording; production management; radio and television presentation, production and direction; and editing for radio and television.
On top of a place on the course, successful applicants will receive mentoring from senior level staff at Sky; one year membership of the Royal Television Society; and get networking opportunities within RTS including invitation to industry events.
Applications for the MA in Broadcast Production are open until 9 May.
