Two weeks left to apply for Scott Trust journalism bursaries

Each year the Scott Trust Ltd, owner of the Guardian Media Group, offers eight bursaries to help aspiring journalists into postgraduate study. The deadline for applications this year is 1 March.

The bursaries are divided up between print, broadcast and online journalism courses, with five for print, two for broadcast and one for online.

The trust says the awards are designed to “assist students who face financial difficulty in attaining the qualifications needed to pursue a career in media,” and they “particularly encourage graduates from diverse social and/or ethnic backgrounds to apply”.

Winners will have their tuition fees paid and receive a subsistence allowance of £5,000. They will also be offered several weeks’ work experience within Guardian Media Group.
