How does it work? We'll explain all in a briefing to be held in the main newsroom at 1300 on Tuesday 17th January. Please attend. This is a unique and immensely valuable opportunity open to all undergraduate students in the Centre. The winner will spend a month long, fully funded placement at Sky News. They will also receive a £3,000 contribution to their tuition fees.Beyond these rewards there is, of course, the prestige and glory of being a member of the tiny and highly select band of Sky Bob Friend Scholars.

Following the briefing, the deadline for submissions will be Friday February 10th. Shortlisted contestants will travel to London for the final selection interviews which will take place at Sky' Millbank studios in Westminter on Friday 17th February. Come to the briefing. All will be explained.
