Our congratulations go to Juliet Binns and Julia Young, the first winners of the Cambridge University press scholarship for our MA Publishing degree course.

This new bursary was offered to the authors of best blogs created to record the learning and experience gained from the MA course.

After receiving the scholarship, Juliet told us: "Being able to present and communicate our ideas to the publishing community is a skill that is becoming increasingly important in today's electronic age. I was initially apprehensive about broadcasting my own interests online but being recognised by such a prestigious academic publisher has given me the encouragement I need to continue with my blog and to investigate other ways of integrating social media with the publishing industry."


Julia told us: "May I take this opportunity to thank CUP for awarding me this bursary, which has given me a great confidence boost. I am grateful for this prize as it has further encouraged me to develop, and further improve upon, my online presence."

The 2012 Cambridge University Press scholarship, which will provide £1200 towards tuition fees, is now open for applications from all offer holders on the MA Publishing course. For details on how to apply please visit the ALSS PG funding page.
