The bursary, from the AJE (Association for Journalism Education) is for a research project into the use of news websites in journalism education.
The Bournemouth Rock – a brand new student newspaper was launched by Journalism students last week on Talbot Campus.
The 40-page tabloid was distributed across the campus with very positive feedback.
The paper covered a range of topics – both relating to the university and to the broader Dorset area with stories including a rise in phone thefts in Bournemouth nightclubs, to the success of students who talked their way across Europe for free in aid of the annual Leggit challenge.
Interviews are to be held this week to decide on editorial roles, which will come into action in the first issue of 2012.
