About the Voquent Voice Acting Scholarship
And we don't just work in English. We cater for projects in any language or accent, recording with voices all over the world. With a growing network of studio partners we're well placed to work with creatives who want to share stories, advertise or entertain audiences - anywhere on Earth.
One of the most frequent questions we get asked is "How do I become a voice actor?"
We know first-hand that getting started in this industry isn't easy and the path isn't always clear. So we've created the Voquent Voice Acting Scholarship to give one lucky student the opportunity to learn from the best in the business and get the recording equipment, advice and marketing they need to work in the industry.
This is an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and the winning student will receive a Scholarship fund worth $2,000 (£1,500)! Not to mention the mentoring they'll receive from industry veterans.
The winning student will receive a prize fund worth approximately $2,000 (£1,500) which will include the studio equipment, education, resources and mentoring to get a flying start in voice over. Here's what's included:
