DAVID NASON JOURNALISM SCHOLARSHIP: CLOSING AUG 23

David Nason was a respected and versatile senior Australian news, print and TV journalist whose journalistic career and life was cut short by cancer.  Those who worked with David said ‘he could turn his hand to any form of journalism’ and could cover stories from sport to politics ‘with equal finesse’.  His career took him around the world, including time in New York as Bureau Chief for The Australian.  He also spent time as a war correspondent, and once took a bullet in the shoulder whilst embedded with the Khmer Rouge.  In 2016 the Nason family established the David Nason Journalism Scholarship in his honor.

The Scholarship will award one student up to $20,000 to cover a part of their tuition or living costs. Further information on the eligibility criteria and scholarship can be found on our website
