The Lyra McKee Journalism Training Bursary Scheme
The aim of this bursary scheme is to train people from underprivileged backgrounds, who aspire to become journalists or who are journalists at the very early stages of their career.

We especially welcome applications from sixth form students, people of colour, people from poorer backgrounds, people with disabilities, carers or anyone who cannot afford to pay for the #CIJSummer training. It is open to UK and republic of Ireland residents only.

The Lyra McKee Journalism Bursary Scheme was inspired by Lyra's determination to become an investigative journalist: despite personal disability, the need to care for her disabled mother as well as fighting the in-built bias against working-class entrants to journalism.

The bursary scheme is funded by the Lorana Sullivan Foundation. The exact number of bursaries will be determined by the individual needs of the applicant. Please read the application notes below.

Application DEADLINE Sun 2 June.
