Lyra McKee Investigative Journalism Training Bursary 2020

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the postponement of the #CIJLyraMcKee Bursary scheme 2020.

Due to the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to make the #CIJSummer Investigative Journalism Conference 2020 and online event only. To ensure the #CIJLyraMcKee bursary recipients get the full experience of attendance and training at a CIJ Summer Conference, we thought it best to postpone the bursary until 2021.

Everyone who applied will be contacted directly.


Lyra McKee Bursary

The aim of this bursary scheme is to train people from underprivileged backgrounds, who aspire to become journalists or who are journalists at the very early stages of their career. We knew Lyra personally at the CIJ.
