NEWS: Free help for investigative journalism projects

A new initiative from City University, London, will supply investigative researchers from its Science Journalism Masters Course to working journalists who apply.

The intention of the scheme is to provide research support for in-depth scientific investigative journalism as part of a joint partnership between the Journalism Department at City University London and ABSW.

According to the course director Connie St Louis “Many science journalists often have projects which they are convinced will lead to a great story but often lack the time and resources to commit to it. The scheme will provide an excellent opportunity to address this.”

All of the highly skilled graduates will be mentored through their six-month research projects by the Director of the Centre of Investigative Journalism, Gavin McFadyean.

To apply, please complete the online form and outline briefly what the project entails. The deadline for applications is Friday 25 September 2009.
