Three post graduate bursaries in copyright

Following sponsorship of Dr. Aislinn O’Connell‘s doctorate in copyright at UCL, The Stationers’ Company has continued its support for copyright students by administering three postgraduate bursaries started in 2017 all initiated by Under Warden Trevor Fenwick.

The founding of a Stationers’ Foundation Copyright Bursary through funds divested in the Foundation from data publishers has been widely welcomed and the first recipient of this bursary has been studying on the Masters’ (LLM) in intellectual property at Queen Mary, University of London.

Funds for two further copyright bursaries on the same course have been provided by The British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association (BLACA).

Chairman of the Stationers’ Foundation, Philip Ellaway, told Stationers’ News: “Intellectual property rights are as fundamental a concern in digital media as they were when the Company controlled copyright and we hope that this partnership (with BLACA) will also continue for many years.”

He added that The Foundation was keen to extend such partnering further as The Stationers’ Company was not a rich company by the standards of some Livery Companies or other membership organisations such as National Trust or the Tate so had to find other ways to extend its reach in its educational endeavours.

The Company managed to “punch above its weight” and leverage the strength of its more than 1,000 members through partnering with other organisations, adding to its own bursary scheme a total of seven awards in conjunction with other partner institutions.

In addition to the three copyright awards there are now 12 other MA bursaries in related subjects such as publishing, management (British Industries Federation), conservation, journalism, digital media, multimedia journalism, digital publishing, interactive digital media, library and information studies and photojournalism.

Interviews for the 2018 awards will take place during the weeks of 25 June and 2 July.  Further information from Philip Ellaway@cityand
