ABC Life Literacy Canada has launched the 2012 Peter Gzowski Life Literacy Fellowship. Each year, the fellowship awards a Canadian journalist with a financial contribution of $3,000 to help in the development, research and publication (print, online or broadcast) of a media story focusing on adult literacy. The goal of the initiative is to generate public awareness of adult literacy and to inspire all Canadians to increase their literacy skills.
The fellowship was founded by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1993 in honour of legendary broadcaster and journalist Peter Gzowski.
Applications for the Peter Gzowski Life Literacy Fellowship are open to all accredited media working and freelance journalists working and residing in Canada as well as media/journalism graduate students enrolled in an accredited post-graduate program in Canada.
The application deadline is 5:00PM EDT on Tuesday, June 5, 2012.

A winner will be selected and notified by the end of June 2012. The fellowship recipient will be officially announced at Life Literacy Night, an ABC Life Literacy Canada celebration on September 27, 2012.
