Initiated and funded by Professor Raymond R Wong, HKBU Professional Journalism Fellowship (PJF@HKBU) is the first-of-its-kind in Hong Kong. It aims to elevate journalism standards by offering practising journalists a unique opportunity to take a break from their professional duties and engage in full-time studies at HKBU.
The selected fellows will have the privilege of studying at HKBU for one or two semesters, and they will be able to attend any courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, with the prior approval of the course instructors. The scheme also provides a stipend that corresponds to the fellows' individual income, ensuring financial support is available throughout their study period.Who Can Apply?
Supported by the Dorothy Shen Wong Memorial Fund, the Hong Kong Baptist University Professional Journalism Fellowship (PJF@HKBU) aims to enhance the standards of the journalism industry of Hong Kong by providing an opportunity for practising journalists to take a break from work to enrich their knowledge by studying at HKBU.
PJF@HKBU is one of the strategic initiatives launched under the Dorothy Shen Wong Memorial Fund. The HKBU School of Communication received a HK$50 million donation in 2020, the biggest single gift it has ever received, from veteran journalist Professor Raymond R Wong in support of the School’s strategic development and journalism education. The donation led to the establishment of the Dorothy Shen Wong Memorial Fund in loving memory of Professor Wong’s late wife.
Professor Raymond R Wong on AI and Journalism
"Like everything else in technology, artificial intelligence (AI) is a tool... We should teach how to produce products, not how to produce tools... We worry too much about the technology of news, rather than the content of news... Don’t let AI control your output because AI can only come up with what you feeding to it in the first place."
Deadline: 12 April 2024
