Aspiring journalists from underrepresented backgrounds can apply for funding to pursue a master’s in journalism.
The Guardian Foundation is offering the Scott Trust Bursaries to assist students who face financial difficulty in attaining the qualifications needed to pursue a career in journalism.
The bursaries pay all course tuition fees and provide a subsistence allowance of GBP6,741 towards living expenses.
In addition, candidates take part in several weeks’ work experience at Guardian News & Media with expenses covered, and are paired with a Guardian mentor.
Candidates are eligible for courses at select universities in the United Kingdom where they can pursue a MA in journalism, data journalism, newspaper journalism or multimedia journalism.
The deadline is May 15.
