Competition for the 2016 Sky Bob Friend Scholarship opens next week, and this year there is an important change in eligibility. Henceforth, with the sole exception that previous winners may not enter again, ALL undergraduate students in the Centre are eligible to compete. So, first, second and third years may enter.
Students have until 4pm on Friday 12 February to submit their entries for this, the most prestigious prize available to journalism undergraduates in the UK. Shortlisting will take place soon afterwards and candidates who make the shortlist will travel to Sky’s Westminster studios at Millbank, London SW1 to meet a panel chaired by a representative of Sky News. At least one student from each year will be shortlisted.
