Australians in Film has announced that applications are now open for the sixth annual Heath Ledger Scholarship. The scholarship is open to an emerging Australian actor, and provides training in the U.S. and more than $20,000 in prizes.

“It is important to us at Australians in Film to foster growth and filmmaking within our own community,” Australian in Film President Tracey Vieira said. “The Heath Ledger Scholarship allows for Australian filmmakers to grow their work within the film business.”

Established in 2008 in memory of Australian actor Heath Ledger, the scholarship includes a return flight to Los Angeles on Virgin Australia, a 10-day California trip from Visit California, a complimentary lifetime membership to StarNow, one year of acting classes at the Stella Adler Academy of Acting & Theatre, a VIP casting package and $10,000.
