The Financial Times is offering two Marjorie Deane Internships for 2018 for six months each, supported by the Marjorie Deane Foundation. The foundation’s purpose is: “To advance the education of the public in financial and monetary theory and institutions and financial journalism in particular by the provision of work experience for students and young people at suitable organisations, and the provision of financial support during such work experience.”
The two placements will be as Reporters on the UK Companies Desk. The first internship will be January-July, the second July-December.
The awards are designed for promising journalists or would-be journalists who would benefit from six months work experience at the FT, writing about finance and companies. The prize includes a bursary to cover accommodation and travel.
For the January-July Marjorie Deane Internship, please apply with a short letter explaining your interest, a brief CV and an original article, no longer than 500 words, on a suitable subject.
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 December 2017. The successful applicant must have the right to work in the UK.
