Scholarship in journalism offered
Budding journalists can apply for a new scholarship to get their qualification.
Community newspaper Indian Newslink and AUT University have teamed to offer the scholarship, which pays tuition, the student services fee and student association fee for one journalism student a year.
It covers one-year postgraduate programmes, including the postgraduate diploma in communication studies, and the bachelor of communication studies.
The scholarship is open to all New Zealand citizens and permanent residents and is aimed at creating a new generation of quality journalists.
Indian Newslink has been running for 10 years and publisher Ravin Lal says the publication wanted to give something back to the community.
He says because of the Indian community’s strong interest in education, the topic has always been a focus of the newspaper.
The first scholarship will be awarded this year for the 2010 intake.
