Journalism students win scholarship and press award

新聞系同學獲進修獎學金和人權新聞獎

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. 
 

梁靄明同學(廣播新聞三年級)最近獲頒韓國政府獎學金,前往南韓延世大學修讀環球事務及政策碩士課程。獎學金包括碩士課程全期學費和其他津貼。
 
靄明很高興獲頒獎學金,並感謝新聞系系主任李月蓮博士和副系主任趙麗如女士的推薦。她表示,在浸大的學習十分愉快。「課程和實習經驗提升了我的思辨能力,令我更加獨立。」
 
此外,莊禮傑(中文新聞三年級)和紀思清同學(廣播新聞三年級),最近憑新聞系學生刊物《新報人》內一篇題為「少數族裔支援大細超」的報道,獲得第19屆人權新聞獎的中文學界報道優異獎。人權新聞獎由國際特赦組織香港分會、香港外國記者會及香港記者協會合辦。
 
兩位得獎同學均感謝新聞系給予《新報人》編採自由,以及系內老師的指導,特別是《新報人》的兩位顧問助理教授杜耀明先生和高級講師黃天賜先生。
