The generous support of individuals and foundations will enable talented Australian storytellers from diverse backgrounds to tell their stories and support the next wave of creative innovations.


Our ambition is to transform the cultural diversity of the Australian media industry and thereby enrich our storytelling. To achieve this we need to educate students from a diversity of backgrounds and provide access to those in financial need.

Your support will enable an individual to have access to AFTRS’ quality education, to tell their stories and contribute to the richness of Australian storytelling.

Scholarships provide financial support for students to contribute to their living expenses and tuition fees.

To find out more, please email scholarships@aftrs.edu.au.

AFTRS Gift Giving

AFTRS is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and is therefore able to offer tax deductibility in Australia for gifts of $2 or more to the School.

AFTRS accepts donations, bequests and enduring gifts for scholarships for talented individuals who do not have the financial means to participate. Your gift will have a direct impact on the success of our students.
