Journalism Diversity Fund Bursaries

Bursaries “Our collaboration with the NCTJ will lead to greater opportunities for budding journalists from British Muslim communities to add their voices to and enrich this key industry." - Asif Aziz, Founder

Widening Access to Journalism

We’ve partnered with the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) to offer bursaries through the JDF to budding journalists from underrepresented backgrounds, who would otherwise be less able to fund their 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.

Your place on a course must be confirmed before applying for a bursary. For more information from the NCTJ, please see here.
