Schol­ar­ship in jour­nal­ism of­fered

Central Leader - - News -

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.
