One week left to apply for Evening Standard scholarship
14 August 2017
Budding journalists have a week left to apply for a London Evening Standard/City University journalism scholarship.
The post graduate journalism scholarship, funded by the London Evening Standard/The Independent to encourage investigative journalism, includes a masters degree course followed by a year of paid on-the-job training at the Evening Standard.
Professor Heather Brooke, pathway leader for MA Investigative Journalism at City University, said: "Thorough and professional investigative journalism about matters of public importance is needed more than ever. I'm delighted we can now offer this fantastic scholarship to a student of merit who needs financial help. There's a danger journalism could become a profession only for those who can afford university tuition. Thanks to the generosity of our funder and partner this opening will be a candidate’s merit regardless of their finances."
The scholarship is worth £10,000 of course fees - sponsored by Quadrature Capital - plus £2,500 living expenses contributed by City University. The successful candidate will also receive paid work experience during the one-year postgraduate course and the following year as a paid trainee in the editorial department of the Evening Standard and the Independent.
Applicants must apply by 21 August by emailing Prof Brooke at firstname.lastname@example.org
