Support Women’s Voices in the Media — in Nepal

The Bo M. Karlsson Foundation is raising $10,000 for a Mass Communication and Journalism scholarship. Will you help?

Every dollar you donate during BMKF’s end of year fundraising campaign will be allocated to our 2018 Mass Communications and Journalism Scholarship. We want to raise $10,000 to cover all four years of study and related expenses for a motivated, deserving Nepalese woman scholar.

We believe it’s essential to promote women’s voices in the media. If you agree, please make a gift!

Why Media and Journalism?

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. We believe that women’s voices are needed in the media.

BMKF’s 2018 Scholarship will provide an opportunity for a bright, talented Nepalese woman to develop her voice, confidence, skills, and platform to make an impact. Your support makes it possible.

Make a gift to support women’s journalism in Nepal.
