Eligibility Criteria

Students must be the child of a professional actor and can be studying any course, not just drama!

Awards are made every September and will continue throughout the length of a course. We check your progress at the end of each year. ACT is more likely to fund first degrees than postgraduate courses, but we recognise that some professions may now require a Masters qualification. Part-time and full-time courses are eligible. Students should be based in the UK, although their actor-parent may have worked overseas or in the UK.
