Postgraduate journalism scholarships in the UK

The Scott Trust, owner of Guardian Media Group, offers scholarships to 10 students each year to do postgraduate study in either: newspaper/online journalism; broadcast journalism; or technology.

The scholarship pays for tuition fees and provides a living allowance of £5,000. The course involves several weeks’ work experience within Guardian Media Group.

According to the website, selection criteria is: "A graduate and a permanent resident in the United Kingdom, ideally you will have had some basic paid or unpaid work experience in journalism, or similar experience, and need the financial support to progress in your career. You will also have built up a portfolio of your work or evidence of your journalism/writing/blogging, and you will be able to show commitment to a career in media."

The application is usually due around February.
