This year’s Guild of St Bride’s bursary award of £3,000 has been made to Sela Musa, who is taking up a masters course place this autumn at City, University of London, studying newspaper journalism.
Sela, from Kettering, Northants, completed her undergraduate studies in politics, philosophy and economics at Royal Holloway, University of London, graduating with first class honours. There she was features editor of her college newspaper The Founder.
She has a passion for grounding her work in the local community and is committed to giving voice to the under-represented so they can have a larger say through her journalism.
The bursary, first awarded in 2012, is the Guild’s practical contribution to encourage a new generation of committed journalists into the profession; it also helps to consolidate the links between St Bride’s and the journalistic community in the UK and worldwide.
The bursary scheme is open to applicants of all faiths and none. Each award is made with regard to assessing candidates’ journalistic potential, academic merit and journalistic potential. Financial need and overall quality of each application is also considered in the panel interview process.
