Foreign correspondent fellowship open [Canada]

Foreign correspondent fellowship open [Canada]


November 15, 2013

Journalists in Canada can participate in this opportunity.

The R. James Travers Foreign Corresponding Fellowship is now accepting applications.

The fellowship will finance a significant foreign reporting project by a Canadian journalist - a staffer, a freelancer or a graduate student - working in any medium.

The program will provide US$25,000 to cover travel, reporting and research expenses.

The fellowship was created by friends and colleagues of the late Jim Travers, who was the Southam News correspondent in Africa and the Middle East during the 1980s, covering major stories from apartheid in South Africa and the Ethiopian famine to the conflict in Lebanon and the Iran-Iraq war.

The deadline is Nov. 15.
