2022 Travers Fellowship open for applications

Applications are now open for the 2022 Travers Fellowship, an international reporting bursary that helps finance foreign reporting projects by Canadian journalists working in any medium.

Freelancers, students enrolled in a graduate level journalism or equivalent program, and full-time journalists are welcome to apply for the fellowship, which provides a $25,000 award to cover travel, reporting and research expenses, and a stipend. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, applicants are advised to keep in mind that travel may be difficult, and should frame their applications accordingly.

The fellowship is named after Jim Travers, a reporter, foreign correspondent, and former editor of The Ottawa Citizen who spent six years reporting from Africa and the Middle East. When Travers died in 2011, his friends and colleagues created the fellowship to commemorate his contribution to Canadian journalism. The award is administered by Carleton University.

The application deadline is Monday March 7, 2022 at 12 p.m. (noon) ETMore information and application instructions are available on the Travers Fellowship website.
