Budding science journalists could be supported to carry out a masters degree after the Wellcome Trust announced a new grant scheme.
The global charitable foundation will offer financial support for two students a year for three years to undertake the MA in Science Journalism at City University London.
The Trust will support one student from the UK or Republic of Ireland and one student from a low or middle income country with a particular connection to the Trust, which includes India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, South Africa, Malawi and Kenya.
Each bursary, which lasts for one academic year, will cover tuition fees, living expenses and a return flight for the international students.
Professor George Brock, Head of Journalism at City University, adds: “We are hugely grateful to the Wellcome Trust for giving the opportunity to take the MA to two additional students. These generous studentships will undoubtedly open the door to a long and rewarding career in the field to some talented individuals.”
