As strikes end and projects re-start, several experienced artists are finding themselves needing to up-skill and revise their portfolio to meet the demands of a competitive industry. Ahead of the June 3, 2024 Term, Think Tank is offering artists who apply to a selection of our portfolio-focused programs an entrance bursary towards their tuition. All applicants have to do is meet the program and general admission requirements as well as provide proof that they have attended a previous program in 3D Modeling, VFX, Animation, or Game Art.

The bursary amounts are based on whether an artist will be studying through Think Tank Online or on Campus, so see below for more details about each program and how the Level Up Portfolio Bursary works.

Got a question? Our Admissions Coordinator, Sheena, can help!

NOTE: all of these programs require at minimum foundational skills within CG art. If you’ve attended a CG art program, but do not meet the skill qualifications, you
may not be entitled to an entrance bursary.
