This fellowship will take place in the prestigious University of Westminster where the fellows will participate in eight intensive weeks of lectures, visits, and discussions that introduce them to key UK academics, media, and political figures in the field.
During his fellowship, Adnan plans to carry out research on the funding and revenue generation strategies used by UK Media to survive in a competitive business environment.
This year 17 journalists will participate in the Chevening South Asia Journalism Fellowship out of which 7 belong to Pakistan. The fellowship will culminate at a symposium in the third week of May.
