Specifically for Graduates of the University of Wales, the Gareth Jones Memorial Travelling Scholarship is currently taking applicants.

This is a fantastic opportunity for any graduate who is currently studying for or may wish to pursue a career in journalism or international affairs.

The Scholarship is provided from the income of a Memorial Fund raised by public subscription to perpetuate the memory of Gareth Richard Vaughan Jones, a graduate of the University, who met his death at the hand of bandits in Inner Mongolia, 12 August, 1935.

The main object of the Scholarship is to enable the holder to travel in foreign countries with a view to facilitating study of international affairs.

Preference will be given to a graduate whose intention is to pursue or continue a scheme of study in preparation for work in journalism focusing on international affairs, or for entry into State or other services relating to international affairs.

Previous winner and Aberystwyth graduate Jason Edwards, was awarded the scholarship for his investigative reporting on food poverty in America. He used the award money towards funding a documentary project undertaken as part of his studies entitled Texas: A State of Hunger.
