Journalism Diversity Fund
We are looking for people from diverse backgrounds who need help funding their journalism training. Bursaries are on offer for those with the potential to succeed in one of the most exciting and rewarding careers around.
What is the Journalism Diversity Fund?
- The fund has been set up by those in the industry who want to join together to support the training of journalists from ethnically and socially diverse backgrounds.
- Editors recognise it is vital that journalists reporting the news reflect the communities they serve.
- It is aimed at people without the financial means to attend NCTJ training courses. Courses are run at universities, colleges and private training providers across the UK. Applicants can be sixth formers, undergraduates, mature students, or professionals looking for a career change, but all will need to demonstrate a genuine commitment to journalism and the potential to be successful.
With our help you could...
- have the costs of your NCTJ-accredited course and examination fees paid for;
- gain support from a personal mentor, a successful working journalist, to provide advice, insight and guidance whilst your complete your training;
- complete the NCTJ qualifications editors ask for. Specialise in newspaper and/or magazine journalism, press photography or photojournalism;
- equip yourself with the vocational skills required to embark on a successful career in journalism;
- get work placements at leading publishers whilst completing your course;
- receive contributions to your living expenses during your training;
- get a head start in one of the most exciting careers around.
