The scholarship programme is designed to strengthen the future of the news business by embracing and elevating historically underrepresented and disadvantaged groups below the senior management level at news media companies.
Early to mid-career journalists and other media professionals can apply for scholarships.
The scholarships will equip new faces and voices with strong news industry fundamentals, as well as with networking and mentoring opportunities.
Scholarship recipients will gain free access to three INMA masterclasses, receive a free membership in INMA for one year, participate in a mentoring video meet-up, and more.
The organiser says, “Removing obstacles for equitable inclusion in news industry training and development can shatter the glass ceiling for professionals from under-represented groups, which hampers innovation and the future of news media.”
The application deadline is September 23, 2022.
