NCTJ students have chance of Daily Mail scholarship

The University of Kent's Centre for Journalism has set up a journalism scholarship in partnership with the Daily Mail. Students who are awarded places on its NCTJ-accredited MA in Multimedia Journalism will be given the chance to compete for the scholarship, due to be launched next year.

All applicants for the postgraduate course will be requested to submit a proposal and then follow up with a story that fits the Daily Mail's style.

The winner will have their annual tuition fees paid for by the scholarship, which is worth £10,000 a year, and will also attend a work placement at the Daily Mail.

Professor Tim Luckhurst, head of the centre for journalism, said: "This is a huge opportunity for a postgraduate journalism student to have their tuition fees covered on this premium course by the Daily Mail.”

He continued, "The successful postgraduate will be ideally placed, through our MA course and the work placement, to learn about the demands of working at the very top level of modern multimedia journalism in print and online."

Applicants to the course will have chance to compete for the scholarship from next spring and the winner will be announced in the autumn.
