Canadian journalism students have one week left to submit applications for the 2016 European Union-Canada Young Journalist Fellowship. The closing date for applications is Monday, May 2.
Launched by the European Union Delegation to Canada and the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ), the EU-Canada Young Journalist Fellowship aims to recognize outstanding journalistic talent among young Canadians. The three winning candidates will be invited to participate in a weeklong study tour to experience the EU institutions, the Canadian Mission to the EU, and media outlets in Brussels. Winners will also attend the daily European Commission press briefing.
Canadian citizens between the ages of 18-30 who are actively enrolled in a Canadian post-secondary institution in the field of journalism are invited to apply for the award. Winners are required to submit a sample of their work and to chronicle their study tour experience online or in print during the study tour or upon their return from Europe.
