The Financial Times is offering two six-month Marjorie Deane Internships, 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 August-February 2020, the second February-August 2020. The awards are designed for promising journalists or would-be journalists who would benefit from six months work experience at the Financial Times, writing about finance and companies.
The prize includes a bursary to cover accommodation and travel.
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. Please clearly indicate which placement you are applying for AUGUST or FEBRUARY or BOTH.
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 14 July 2019.
