As a George Viner Scholar, you will receive much more than financial assistance. You will be invited to open days, conferences and meetings relating to your chosen field of journalism and have the support of the trustees throughout your course. All scholars must attend the annual ceremony, held in February, which is attended by journalists and industry leaders.

The timetable for applications for courses taking place in 2021/2022 will soon be announced.

If you are interested in applying for a bursary, please email [email protected] to be placed on a mailing list to receive further information.

This applies to courses in the 2021/2022 academic year – even if courses started in, for example, January 2021.


You are also encouraged to join the NUJ as a student member and, once you qualify, as a full member. The benefits of being a student member of the union are extensive.

Good luck with your application!
