Disability bursary

24th October 1997 at 01:00
The Royal Association for Disability and Rehabilitation has joined forces with a consortium of independent television companies - GMTV, Meridian, Westcountry, ITN, Anglia and HTV - to establish a bursary for a disabled student wishing to enter broadcast journalism. The initiative is in recognition of the shortage of qualified people with disabilities either working or applying for positions within the industry. Applicants will need to have applied for a place on a Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) one-year recognised course.

The successful candidate will receive payment of course fees, help with rent and other living costs and an opportunity to gain work experience with each of the host companies.

Details: Steve Davis, RADAR, 12 City Forum, 250 City Road, London EC1V 8AF. Tel: 0171 566 0127.
