SLX launches Student bursary scheme

SLX are thrilled to announce the launch of their new Student Bursary scheme. The scheme is open to all second and third year lighting design students across England and Wales, providing 5 successful students with equipment, support and opportunities throughout the academic year. SLX have supported and sponsored students in many ways through our history, employing student casuals, offering sponsorships and apprenticeships across the business. 

Jo Sunners, Business Development Manager at SLX describes the inspiration behind the scheme “After a few months of consulting with drama schools and industry professionals we wanted to launch a new way of supporting the next generation of technical 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  open for the bursary, after interviews of the shortlisted students have taken place, we will announce the recipients.
