Scott Trust To Fund Online Courses

The Scott Trust has extended its bursary scheme to encompass digital journalism.

Funding opportunities are now available for students taking postgraduate courses in online journalism, with technology and broadcast bursaries also open to application.

Each award, worth up to £10,000, includes work experience with the Guardian Media Group (GMG).

“GMG said that changes to the bursaries are to better reflect the breadth of the group’s operations across online, radio and newspapers,” reports journalism.co.uk.

It continues: “The Trust aims to offer the majority of the awards to applicants from minority ethnic backgrounds, with the technology bursaries targeted at female applicants.”

Further details can be found at the Scott Trust.
