HEATH LEDGER SCHOLARSHIP 

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

“Any time I am alive is when I'm on set.”

Heath Ledger

The Heath Ledger Scholarship is awarded to an emerging Australian actor who demonstrates extraordinary ability and dedication to their craft and has international aspirations in their career and or training.

“The Heath Ledger Scholarship was vastly transformative for me. It is professionally catapulting and personally enriching. I'm so grateful for Heath's legacy of creative brilliance and personal generosity that continues to open doors for Australian talent.”

2018 Recipient Charmaine Bingwa

2021 marks the 11th year the Heath Ledger Scholarship is running. Our past recipients have all been recognised globally for their achievements.

HLS VALUES

AiF are strongly encouraging applications from under-represented members of the Australian acting community to apply.
