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 2020/2021 is as follows:

Applications available  
Deadline for applications  
Shortlisting  
Interviews  

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

Applications received outside the deadline will not be considered.

Please download the bursary application pack, read the guidance, complete and return by email to [email protected]

Include any examples of your journalistic work with your application form.

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!
