Scholarship Opportunities listed on Student Expert Blog


The Hausa Home Video Resource Centre recently subscribed to a newsletter from the Student Expert blog, which is doing excellent work gathering and making public information about academic opportunities all over the world.  The site has specific tabs for undergraduate bachelor degree opportunities, Masters Degree level opportunities, PhD opportunitiesPostdoctoral opportunities, fellowships, awards, prizes, and conferences. Rather than re-post every slightly relevant opportunity, we thought it would be best to write a post on the site, and let you subscribe if you are interested. Although most of these opportunities are not related to film, it is useful for those looking for study opportunities. Programmes such as the Jane Klausman Women in Business Scholarships,  for example, would be useful to women who are interested in undergraduate or post-graduate business training to produce films. Under each article is a link to the original website (For example, the original Jane Klausman Women in Business Scholarship information can be found here) where the scholarship or opportunity is listed.
