The University of Salford is delighted to announce a new scholarship programme with the Asian Media Awards for an Asian applicant to prepare for a career in the creative industries.
The scholarship is a collaboration between the University and the national gala that will provide £10k for an applicant to study a three-year undergraduate programme in either television, film or media.
It comes as the University celebrates ten years as the premier partner of the Awards and has been running a campaign over recent months to celebrate the success of our graduates of Asian descent in the creative sectors, the Awards’ rise as a major media event and to help raise the profile of a career in these industries to those of Asian descent.
Professor Allan Walker, Dean of the School of Arts, said:
‘We are absolutely delighted to announce a new scholarship for an Asian applicant to pursue a career in the creative industries at the University of Salford. We are tremendously proud of our partnership with the Asian Media Awards over the last ten years and are very thankful to Shuiab for his support in making this scholarship a reality.’
A statement on behalf of the Asian Media Awards said:
‘We have been keen to support those who are taking their first steps into journalism and creative media since the onset. We hope this scholarship will assist someone into further education who may not have considered taking the route due to financial constraints. It may also inspire young people to consider a career in the media.’
The Asian Media Award Scholarship will be available for applicants looking to attend the University from the 2024/25 academic year. More information on how one of our students can apply for this Scholarship will be available soon on the Donor Funded Scholarships and Bursaries web page.
