UPES School of Modern Media will offer full scholarships to select students to pursue its digital-first media programmes. The scholarship is offered on all the undergraduate media programmes – BA in Journalism and Mass Communication, BA in Digital and Mass Media and BBA in Events, Public Relations and Corporate Communications. These new Digital Innovation Scholarships are funded by Meta (formerly Facebook) and reserved for students from underprivileged backgrounds to support their first career steps into the expanding space of digital media. Six scholarships will be awarded this year and their recipients will be chosen via a competitive nation-wide entrance examination conducted by UPES.
UPES School of Modern Media dean Nalin Mehta said, “Digital technologies have proved to be a great leveller across many social divides and as India’s only digital-first media school we are committed to providing best-in-class digital media education by removing access barriers. We are delighted that Meta is supporting this initiative by funding our inaugural Digital Innovation Scholarships. We are focused on providing cutting-edge training to the young talent in the country and preparing them for the needs of the digital media industry. This scholarship programme opens up new opportunities for talented young students who were so far held back from the best opportunities due to financial barriers.”
