How can the Journalism Diversity Fund help you?
The Journalism Diversity Fund awards bursaries to people from diverse backgrounds who need help funding their NCTJ journalism training. Bursaries are awarded four times per year and can help cover the costs of NCTJ course fees and/or living expenses. Recipients will also be paired with a working journalist to mentor them throughout their studies.
Supported by those in the industry who want to make newsrooms better reflect the communities they serve, applications are open to individuals with the potential to succeed in one of the most exciting and rewarding careers around.
We are an industry supported fund, and wouldn't be able to award bursaries without the generous donations of our sponsors. Want to become a sponsor? Email [email protected] to find out how you can help.
