CJF Aboriginal Journalism Fellowship

Monday, 07 April 2014 09:11

The recipient of the CJF Aboriginal Journalism Fellowship will be hosted for one month by CBC News at its new Aboriginal Centre in Winnipeg.

This new fellowship offers an early-career Aboriginal journalist the chance to explore an issue of interest to First Nations, Métis or Inuit peoples.

The award aims to foster better comprehension of Aboriginal issues in Canada's major media and community outlets.

"This is a very special new initiative for CJF," says Bob Lewis, chair of the CJF. "It aims in a small way to help bridge the yawning gap between traditional news media and the oft-ignored stories of Canada's Aboriginal people. I hope it grows over the years as a significant platform for emerging Aboriginal journalists."

The recipient will be selected by a jury.

The deadline to apply is April 30, 2014, 5:00 p.m. EDT.
