2019 Sky Bob Friend Scholarship - applications in January

Sky's Sophy Ridge, presenter of Sophy Ridge on Sunday, will deliver the 2019 Sky Bob Friend Memorial Lecture and present the 2019 Bob Friend Scholarship  in the Historic Dockyard Church on Wednesday 6 March 2019. First, of course, we must select a scholar.  So, there will be a detailed briefing for students who wish to compete for the 2019 Sky News Bob Friend Scholarship on Monday 14 January at 1300 in the main newsroom. 

This is a unique and immensely valuable opportunity open to undergraduate students in the Centre - first, second and third years. 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.
