Final 2016/2017 shortlist for interviews announced

The last applications for the 2016/2017 Journalism Diversity Fund cycle have now been shortlisted. Ten journalists, hoping to secure the funding they need to cover the cost of their NCTJ-accredited journalism training, have been invited to interview.

The full shortlist is as follows:

  • Lillie Almond
  • Rebecca Banovic
  • Benny Bonsu
  • Candiece Cyrus
  • Tomasz Frymorgen
  • Izzy Lyons
  • Thapelo Moloantoa
  • Natasha Patel
  • Nicholas Turner
  • Nadine White

The candidates will be questioned by a panel of senior media industry members at the Daily Telegraph offices on Friday, 9 December.

The applicants will be asked various questions about their passion for journalism, financial need and diversity.

Bursaries are awarded to those from socially or ethnically diverse backgrounds who have a passion for journalism and can demonstrate how they will bring diversity to the newsroom. Bursaries are awarded to cover the cost of journalism training and may include a contribution towards travel or living expenses depending on financial need.

Applications for bursaries are currently closed. Cohort 1 of the 2016/2017 cycle will open in February 2017. For further information, contact journalismdiversityfund@nctj.com.
