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.

- Tomasz Frymorgen
- Izzy Lyons

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
