Journalism students win scholarship and press award
Rosalie Leung (Broadcast Journalism, Year 3) was recently awarded the Korean Government Scholarship to study Master of Global Affairs and Policy at Yonsei University in South Korea. The scholarship covers full tuition fee for the master’s degree and other allowances.
Rosalie was delighted to receive the scholarship and thanked Dr Alice Lee, Head, and Ms Bonnie Chiu, Associate Head of the Department of Journalism, for recommending her to the scholarship. She also found it a pleasant experience studying at HKBU. “The programme and the internship experience have strengthened my critical thinking skills and trained me to become more independent.”
Meanwhile, Chong Lai-kit (Chinese Journalism, Year 3) and Kei Sze-ching (Broadcast Journalism, Year 3) won the Student Chinese Merit award at the 19th Annual Human Rights Press Awards jointly organised by Amnesty International Hong Kong, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Journalists Association, with their report entitled “Minority Groups in Hong Kong Don’t Have Equal Employment Rights” in San Po Yan, the publication produced by the students of the Department of Journalism.
Both students were grateful for the editorial freedom granted by the Department of Journalism to San Po Yan as well as the guidance of faculty members of the department, especially the two advisors to San Po Yan, Mr To Yiu-ming, Assistant Professor, and Mr Wong Tin-chi, Senior Lecturer.
