Guardian Foundation offers bursaries [UK]

Posted on Apr 24, 2020 in Journalism Basics

Aspiring journalists from underrepresented communities can apply for a scholarship.

The Guardian Foundation is accepting candidates for the Scott Trust Bursaries.

The bursaries cover all tuition fees for an M.A. program in journalism and a stipend of GBP6,000 for living expenses. The program also provides work experience at Guardian News & Media and mentorship.

Those who successfully complete the program may also receive a six-month paid contract at the Guardian.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate that without financial support they would be unable to pursue a master’s program.

The deadline is May 2.
