Final-year students and recent graduates aged 26 years and under are invited to apply for the Jacoby-Walkley Scholarship.

Successful applicants will take part in a paid 12-week program which includes placement at 60 minutes, the Nine newsroom, A Current Affair and Today, followed by placement at the Walkley Foundation. They will also receive mentoring from senior journalist members of the Walkley Advisory Board.

The Jacoby-Walkley Scholarship was established in 2013 with support from ITV Studios Australia managing director Anita Jacoby to recognise the legacy of her father, Phillip Jacoby.

Kirrily Schwarz, 2014 Jacoby-Walkley Scholarship winner, gained invaluable experience.

“The Scholarship helped me kick-start my career in a way I had only dreamed about. After my internship, I was offered a job in the Nine newsroom. It’s a very exciting and dynamic place to be, giving me the chance to develop my skills by learning from some of the industry’s best,” she said.

Applications close 5pm on April 28, 2015.
