Unusual opportunity to apply SW development skills to an Ivy-League level journalism program (perhaps with a full scholarship)

Thanks a lot to a Malaysian who has been sharing useful information for young Malaysian.
Do check out this program and if you are interested, do contact me and I can link you with a contact, who might be able to help you.
(Some of the dates in the website seems not updated, but basically, just update it to the right year).

Journalism Scholarships Available for Programmers/Developers

Applications from candidates for these new scholarships are being accepted now, for admission to start in 2009 (enrolling in January, June or September) or January 2010.

Are you a skilled programmer or Web developer? Are you interested in applying your talents to the challenge of creating a better-informed society? Do you want to learn how to find, analyze and present socially relevant information that engages media audiences? Do you see possibilities for applying technology as a way to connect people and information on the Web or new delivery platforms?

If your answers are "yes," consider applying to Medill for a master's degree in journalism. You can earn your degree in just a year. You will learn new skills that will open doors to new opportunities that might help build a better democracy. And a new program at Medill offers you a chance to win a fully funded scholarship.


Over the next three years, Medill will offer the equivalent of nine full tuition scholarships, to programmer/developers who earn a MSJ at Medill. At least one full scholarship will be offered in each of the next three years; the remaining scholarship money will be awarded as full or partial scholarships based on the applicant pool.
