Last year, the award-winning video journalist Sue Lloyd-Roberts sadly died from Leukaemia at the age of 64. She was a pioneering reporter who worked for many broadcasters including the BBC, ITN and Channel 4. Her reports -usually produced working alone or in a small team in difficult and closed societies – focused on human rights abuses and international affairs.
In memory of her significant achievements her family and friends have launched a fund to pay for a scholarship for a student on one of Cardiff’s MA courses (MA Journalism or MA International Journalism).
The scholarship will launch this year 2016 and hopefully run for many years ahead. Candidates will have to outline their interest in international affairs or a human rights issue along with a cv. Details will be published on the University and School of Journalism website, and via this blog, later this year.
The successful candidate will be expected to undertake a project related to international affairs or human rights during their course.
The Scholarship fund is underway and aims to provide scholarships for the next few years – but her family and friends are still raising funds to build it for the long term.
More details about the scholarship can be provided by Professor Sambrook. Donations (every penny raised will go directly to support the fund) can also be made now via http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/donate/give-now
