The foundation’s executive director Dawa Penjor and one of the board members Needrup Zangpo was at Sherubtse College from 27-29 September 2013 to discuss BMF’s possible interventions to support the Media Studies programme.

“BMF’s support to the program will consist of guest lectures, specialised training programs, workshops and seminars on various subjects of journalism and media,” Dawa Penjor said.

As a part of the collaboration, BMF will facilitate students and faculties to intern and work with the Bhutanese, Indian and international media agencies as well as exchange programs and support the strengthening of the student newsletter and campus Radio.

From the next academic year, Sherubtse College will also offer one to two seats for in-service Bhutanese media persons to pursue undergraduate degree in media studies. BMF will identify the candidates who fulfill the college’s admission criteria, and also search and establish scholarships.
