The John Thompson Marketing & Media Scholarships 2011, Ireland

Dublin City University and the family and friends of the late John Thompson have announced the John Thompson Marketing & Media Scholarships for 2011. Scholarships are available to support Masters students of journalism and of marketing, and to help prepare them for the changing world of publishing. The scholarship programme was established in 2008 to honour the memory of the late John Thompson, former Chief Executive of Associated Newspapers Ireland (Daily Irish Mail and Mail on Sunday) and Managing Director, The Star.
The scholarships aim to encourage connections between journalism and marketing by encouraging media and communications graduates to study marketing and business graduates to study Journalism. The idea for this approach reflects a deeply held belief of John Thompson’s that the two disciplines are critical and reinforce each other.

The scholarships will cover fees and some expenses for two students each year to undertake Masters programmes at Dublin City University. One, a graduate of Journalism, Media or Communications, will undertake the MBS in Marketing at DCU Business School. The second scholarship will be awarded to a graduate of Business studies to undertake the MA in Journalism at DCU School of Communications.

Applications for these Scholarships are open to graduates – including those expecting to graduate in summer 2011 – of all recognised higher education

Scholarship Application Deadline: by 4pm, Tuesday 29 March 2011
