Applications for Scotiabank/CJFE Journalism Fellowship now open

Scotiabank and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE) are now accepting entries for the 2015-2016 Scotiabank/CJFE Journalism Fellowship. Now in its fifth year, this program creates an opportunity for a mid-career journalist from South America, Central America, the Caribbean or Mexico to participate in a two-semester fellowship hosted by Massey College at the University of Toronto. Previous fellows have been from El Salvador, Mexico, Venezuela and Uruguay.

Run in tandem with the Canadian Journalism Fellowships, the Scotiabank/CJFE Journalism Fellow has an opportunity to broaden his or her horizons by spending eight months in residence at Massey College and auditing courses at the University of Toronto. The fellowship also provides an opportunity to forge new connections with Canadian media, expand on work related to a significant issue, and apply this experience upon return to the fellow’s home country.

The deadline for applications for the 2015-2016 Fellowship is Friday, February 20.
