Про фонд.

The Rory Peck Trust Safety Training Fund enables freelance journalists to gain the essential skills and knowledge needed to work in difficult and potentially dangerous situations. Launched in 2000, the Training Fund has given hundreds of bursaries to freelance journalists, photographers, camera operators and filmmakers to allow them to take part in a training course with one of our trusted course providers. Courses teach them to assess risk and spot danger, handle a crisis, support others and give vital first aid.

Хто може подати заявку?

To qualify, you will need to have worked as a freelancer in newsgathering and/or current affairs for a minimum of 18 months. The number of bursaries is limited and priority is given to freelancers whose work frequently takes them into hostile environments, and to those with a confirmed assignment.
