Journalism and Diversity Fund (JDF)

The Aziz Foundation continues to support aspiring British Muslim journalists, most recently through becoming a sponsor of the NCTJ’s Journalism Diversity Fund (JDF).

The JDF enables the professional development and training of young journalists from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds through its bursary awards. Since its founding, the JDF has provided financial assistance to over 400 students undertaking NCTJ-accredited courses.
