Walkley Young Indigenous Scholarship

Walkley Young Indigenous Scholarship logo

This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring Indigenous journalist aged 30 years or under to develop their newsroom experience with two leading news providers.

This twelve-week scholarship will be broken down into six weeks with Junkee Media and six weeks with 10 News First in Sydney. You’ll develop a broad understanding of newsroom and production processes and requirements, and as a member of the team you will be encouraged to share your ideas, skills and knowledge.

Thanks to BHP, the recipient will receive a stipend of $10,000 to cover living expenses for the duration of the scholarship. The recipient will  receive support and guidance from an experienced journalist who will mentor them throughout their placement. Accommodation at the Tony Mundine Hostel is also available.

There is no application fee to apply for this scholarship.

Closing date: Friday 17 January 2020.
