After the success of the bursary programme last year Chelsea and BCOMS are offering another opportunity for 2 young aspiring journalists to access funding to complete the NCTJ course with News Associates in Twickenham. https://
The bursary will see 2 aspiring journalists follow in the footsteps of Brian Matovu and Um-E-Aymen Babar who were successful in the bursary process last year. Both Um-E-Aymen and Brian since qualifying have secured full time positions with Arsenal and BBC Sport.

Applicants will be asked to submit a written, audio or video presentation on what the bursary would mean for them and why diversity within the sports media is important.
