Determined to Elevate Women’s Voices in Nepal: a New BMKF Scholarship for Mass Communication and Journalism.
In 2018, the Bo M. Karlsson Foundation will be offering a designated scholarship for a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication and Journalism (BA MCJ).
We believe it’s essential to promote women’s voices in the media, and this scholarship is our next step in providing Nepalese women the skills and confidence to have their voices heard in an increasingly impactful and widespread way.
Media is a fast growing industry in Nepal. The prevalence of digital technologies has helped spur an expanded range of job opportunities from content writers, bloggers, and newspaper editors to professional anchors and TV hosts. Stories shared in the media have the power to shape local, national, and global opinions — to influence everything from fashion trends to politics and gender power dynamics.
In the 14 years BMKF has been awarding scholarships, only one scholar has decided to pursue a journalism degree. Designating this new scholarship specifically for Mass Communication and Journalism is our next big step in empowering Nepalese women to raise their voice and be heard.
