Scholarship Details:

The Fellowship provides an unrivalled opportunity for an exceptional early career journalist: a six to nine month Fellowship with Durham University which will include undertaking an investigative project from inside the Reuters newsroom in London, mentored by top Reuters editors in the field while being overseen by Durham University and having access to University academics and research resources.

This Fellowship is designed to give the applicant the chance to develop rigorous, fact-based research and reporting skills.   

The Fellowship was created in honour of Sir Harry Evans, one of the pioneers of modern investigative journalism.

The award winning work he spearheaded as editor of The Northern Echo, The Sunday Times and The Times – from his celebrated campaign to obtain compensation for Thalidomide children, to exposing the cover-up of Soviet spy Kim Philby and unmasking corporate deception at the heart of the DC-10 Paris air crash in 1974 – made him the gold standard of courageous public interest journalism. He was voted by his media peers as the Greatest British Newspaper Editor of all time.
