Ideas Tap in conjunction with the Sky Academy, are back once again offering five lucky candidates a scholarship of £30,000! That’s a lot of pull for any creative venture! The competition for these coveted sums is open to Ideas Tap members from the UK and Republic of Ireland, aged 18-30, who are working in one of these creative categories:
Creative Writing (Not Including Film or Television Scripts)
This year, 4 of the scholarships will be awarded to applicants living in the UK while 1 lucky resident of the ROI will receive one as well.
As long as you’re between the ages of 18-30, then you’re over the major restrictions effectively. Some of the Alums from last year have gone on to use their funding for some incredible creative ventures, from art exhibitions & dance recitals to self publishing and producing music albums! So really, there’s no limit to what you want to achieve, you just have to go out there and try to make it happen. Alongside the obvious financial benefit to the scholarships, successful alumni will have access to the mentors and advice of experts from specialized fields, with the goal being to realise your creative venture!

Here at Startacus we aren’t all about the big business plan, we’re all about the ideas and go-getters who take their ideas and do something with them, and we’d love to see or hear from anyone who applies to such a scholarship! Good luck to all who do – We’re rooting for you!
