Itchen Student Wins Prestigious Journalism Scholarship

English & Media

The Royal Television Society has announced the recipients of its bursaries for 2018.

We are very pleased to say that one of our students, Georgia Keetch, has received the prestigious Steve Hewlett Scholarship. This means she will be working with industry professionals, including the BBC, as well as receiving £2000 per year while studying for a BA (Hons) Journalism at the University of Sussex.

Georgia was at Itchen last year and was a prominent student journalist and Itchen Radio presenter, focussed on politics. While at Itchen, she sourced interviews with The Mayor of Southampton, Labour Councillor Satvir Khan, Conservative MPs Royston Smith, and Suella Braverman who also invited her to Parliament.

This is a fantastic achievement considering only two of these scholarships are awarded each year, from about 800 applicants and we are all very proud of Georgia.
