A bursary to help students from underrepresented groups break into journalism

The Daily Mail, City University and the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust have teamed up to launch a bursary to help students from under-represented groups break into journalism.

Together we are looking to give two aspiring journalists the chance to learn the trade from the best.

You will receive a full fee scholarship for a postgraduate degree course starting in September 2017, support from City journalism academics, access to work experience at the Daily Mail, as well as professional mentorship from senior journalists.

You will also receive financial support for living expenses, rent and other costs while studying for the degree.

On completion of the MA, if you are successful you will be offered a place on the Daily Mail or MailOnline editorial graduate trainee scheme, where you will receive a 12-month paid contract.

You must be available to start in September 2017 and the course will last for 12 months, after which you will be considered for the Mail scheme.

Students interested in applying should email sldmscholarship@city.ac.uk,
including a CV, examples of work and a personal statement of no more than 500 words. The closing date is Friday April 7 at 5pm.

Full details of the scholarship and application procedure can be found at the Department of Journalism website, at www.city.ac.uk/journalism.
