MTN Scholarships for South African Students: The Sol Plaatje Institute for Media Leadership (SPI) at Rhodes University’s School of Journalism and Media Studies invites applications for four scholarships from South African students who wish to register for the SPI’s Postgraduate Diploma in Media Management (PDMM).
The scholarships, which cover full accommodation at Rhodes University, the PDMM tuition fees, medical insurance, books and stationery and a small subsistence allowance, are sponsored by MTN.
The PDMM is equivalent to an honours degree and combines rigorous theoretical and practical grounding.
The diploma composes of eight compulsory modules covering media economics and financial management; media markets, audiences and advertising; managing media content; managing circulation and distribution. Media management and leadership; media management contexts, policy and institutions; new media and convergence; and human resources.
Only South African students are eligible to apply for these scholarships.
Applicants should ideally have completed an undergraduate degree from a recognised university.
Experienced media practitioners with diplomas in journalism or mass communication studies will also be eligible.
