Calling young aspiring foreign correspondents

The Richard Beeston Bursary is an award for an aspiring British foreign correspondent to spend six weeks abroad, researching and reporting a foreign news story, on a fellowship with The Times newspaper.

A further award is available for a young Israeli, Lebanese or Palestinian journalist to spend six weeks on secondment to The Times in London.

Applicants should have at least two years journalistic experience, be under the age of 30 and have a professional command of English. The announcement of the winners of the 2014 Richard Beeston bursaries will be made at The Frontline Awards in October 2014.

The winners will need to undertake the period of travel between November 2014 and September 2015. Each award is worth £6,000 and will be made in two instalments. The Times foreign desk will host the incoming fellow and mentor the travelling foreign correspondents.
