Screen and Film School Birmingham are delighted to announce the winner of this year’s Adil Ray OBE Scholarship, Yonatan Tiruneh.
Over 60% of the new Birmingham cohort applied for the scholarship and the opportunity to be mentored by Birmingham’s Patron, Adil Ray OBE. The life changing £30,000 scholarship will cover the 3-year undergraduate degree tuition fees for the lucky student. Three of the candidates were shortlisted and the final decision was in Adil’s hands on who he could best support as a mentor and on their onward filmmaking journey. Adil was that impressed with the applications, he has generously offered to mentor two other students alongside the talented winner, Yonatan Tiruneh.
