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.
Good luck with your application!
