Our fifth annual competition for bursaries opens May 15. These bursaries help freelancers attend hazardous environment training courses - the same kind of courses staffers get. We don’t encourage freelancers to place themselves in danger. We try to ensure they know how to avoid unnecessary risks and how to handle dangers that increasingly befall journalists in many situations abroad.
