The Journalism Diversity Fund provides bursaries to help people without the financial means, who can show they are either socially or ethnically diverse, to attend NCTJ-accredited journalism courses. All applicants to the fund will need to demonstrate a genuine commitment to journalism and the potential to be successful. With the help of the Journalism Diversity Fund, applicants could have the costs of their NCTJ-accredited course and examination fees paid for:
- Equip themselves with the vocational skills required to embark on a successful career in journalism
- Get work placements at leading publishing companies while completing your course
- Receive contributions to their living expenses during your training.
There are four rounds of applications for each academic year and the next deadline for applications is 5pm on 6th April 2016.
