Top scholarships for journalism students

Is curiosity your defining trait? Do most of your sentences begin with ‘why’, ‘who’, ‘where’, ‘how’, and ‘when’? Are you more concerned with international affairs and politics than your meal timings?

If you answered in the affirmative to all of the above, you would be a great fit as a journalist.

Journalism has come a long way in the information age. In the era of ‘fake news’, the importance of journalists who value truth and objectivity is even greater. And unlike most of the 20th century, today, aspiring journalists can pursue formal studies in journalism as a subject from the top universities in the world.
