Scholarship Fund

In the year 2003, a threat emerged in broadcasting and print media houses following the introduction of new policies that pegged employment to undergraduate degrees. More than 20 women journalists lost their jobs, many of who were AMWIK members.

This compelled AMWIK members to come together and find a solution to the crisis, thus the idea of a Scholarship Fund was born. The AMWIK Scholarship Fund, established in 2004 is a unique idea that stemmed from the necessity to assist members to access higher education so as to remain relevant in their work places and be competitive in the job market.

The scholarship fund is a revolving fund, meaning that those that benefit from it will pay back certain percentages to enable other members to benefit. 26 members have so far benefited from this revolving fund, with more set to benefit in the coming years.
