RTS undergraduate bursary for GCU student

A student starting Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU)’s BA (Hons) Multimedia Journalism course has received a bursary from the Royal Television Society’s inaugural undergraduate bursary scheme.

Emma Duncan, from Fife, will receive £3,000 (£1,000 per year) to assist with her studies. She will also receive mentoring and free membership of The Hospital Club and the Royal Television Society (RTS) while studying.

RTS is Britain's leading forum for television and related media and an educational charity whose purpose is to promote the art and science of television.

The undergraduate bursary scheme is supporting 20 individuals, the funding totalling £60,000, with the aim of widening participation in media and related industries and assisting talented people who need financial support.

Theresa Wise, RTS CEO, says “Great talent can be lost without the right support. We’re committed to finding, funding and nurturing the next generation and through the RTS Undergraduate Bursary Scheme I am convinced that we can make a critical contribution. The response to our inaugural bursary scheme has been fantastic and following an exacting selection process I’m excited to announce the first beneficiaries – all of whom stood-out and demonstrated ambition and commitment to learning. We look forward to following their future career achievements.”
