Entry deadline for Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary is this week

Applications for the Gordon Sinclair Foundation’s Roving Reporter Bursary are due on Saturday, March 28. The Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary was established in 2013 to support a research and reporting trip by an early career Canadian journalist who has recently graduated from one of Canada’s university-level journalism programs.

The purpose of the $15,000 bursary is to encourage a young journalist to get off the beaten track and to spend a considerable period away on a reporting assignment – a minimum of six weeks. To be successful, applicants must present a proposal to travel abroad or to a region of Canada that is not usually well covered by the media and to research and prepare a substantial body of journalistic work on an important issue.
