City University London delighted to announce new journalism bursary
City University London is delighted to announce a new bursary for prospective MA Newspaper Journalism or MA Interactive Journalism students. The bursary, sponsored by The Tab, an online newspaper for university students, will be offered over 3 years. It will start in the 2014/15 academic year and be worth £4,500 each year.
The bursary will be awarded by a selection committee comprising Jack Rivlin, Editor-in-Chief of The Tab, Professor George Brock, Head of Journalism at City University London and a working journalist independent of both The Tab and the University. As part of the selection process, applicants will be required to submit three articles which would be relevant to The Tab readers. The successful candidate will be expected to submit a minimum of five articles to The Tab over the following academic year.
Commenting on The Tab's sponsorship of the bursary Jack Rivlin says: "This bursary lives up to our mission to train students to be top journalists and give them real career opportunities. Having The Tab on your CV is already a mark of quality and this partnership with the top journalism course in the country was an obvious step."
Professor George Brock says: "We're grateful and delighted to offer a bursary from such an innovative player and top training ground for young journalists."
In order to be eligible for the bursary, applicants must hold a confirmed offer for a place on the MA Newspaper Journalism or the MA Interactive Journalism course. Applicants with confirmed offers will be contacted directly by the course office and invited to apply. The deadline for applications is the 24th May 2014.
The Tab was founded by City alumnus Jack Rivlin (MA Newspaper Journalism 2012) and Cambridge University alumnus George Marangos-Gilks.
