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.
