Scott Trust bursaries

Three bursaries to help aspiring journalists break into the media

The Guardian Foundation offers a number of bursaries each year for aspiring journalists to study for an MA in journalism. Details of courses which qualify can be viewed here. 

The primary aim of these bursary awards is to assist students who face financial difficulty in attaining the qualifications needed to pursue a career in media.

As a media organisation we are keen to reflect the society we serve. We recognise that certain groups are under-represented within this industry and so we particularly encourage applications from graduates with diverse social and/or ethnic backgrounds. 

Past beneficiaries of the bursary awards have gone on to successful careers at a variety of media organisations, including the Guardian.

The deadline for receipt of applications for our 2019 placements has now closed. 

Please revisit the site again in February 2020 to apply for our 2020 bursaries.
