Bursaries for Journalism degrees

The Journalism programme is supported by a number of scholarships and bursaries. These are:

The Old Mutual bursary for Masters study for African women  journalists;

China-Africa Reporting Project  funding for Masters  candidates who do research into media reporting  on the relationship between China and Africa;

Konrad Adenauer Stiftung scholarships for full-time study  for journalists from Sub-Saharan Africa.


How to apply

Each bursary has its own application process and its own deadlines.  Please make sure that you are eligible for the programme that you are  applying for by consulting our website https://www.wits.ac.za/. You may  also apply for the programme through our online portal http://www.wits.ac.za/mywits.
However, acceptance to one of our programmes does not guarantee  funding; you must apply for that through the particular application process  set out by each funder.

Please contact the MA convener, Ruth Becker, for information on applying for the Masters, and journinfo@wits.ac.za for information on  applying for the Honours.
