    Is this still available on 2010? I would really love to take part to this scholarship because it would be a chance for me to widen my horizon as far as broadcast journalism is concerned.
    I am currently working as a news reporter in a local television in the Philippines. It has always been my dream to experience working abroad as a journalist and to learn more about this profession, how it is being done in the other country…
    I highly salute the institutions that give chances to deserving people, who cannot afford to study abroad, to make their dreams come true…
