The bursary is provided for a media project that would benefit the bursar’s organisation, society and meet the objectives of the Public Media Alliance (PMA) and the bursary-funding organisation.
As part of the project the successful participant will also be required to plan an exchange between their own PMA member organisation and that of the country they intend to visit. On completion of the project the bursar is required to submit a report, pictures and an account of their experiences.
PMA Bursars in 2017 included: a senior media professional exploring how to make programmes to engage younger audiences, an Editor embracing digital broadcasting, journalists sharing and reporting on free media and devising production and social media guidelines as well as a content producer on a study tour to learn how to commission new drama.
Professionals from Jamaica, Bangladesh, South Africa, Seychelles, Trinidad, New Zealand, Guyana and the UK made exchange visits to Barbados, Canada, Tonga, Panama, Dominic Republic, Malaysia and Mauritius.
