Journalist bursaries and fellowships

Heads up, Story Board readers: a couple of opportunities for journalists have crossed my desk over the past couple of days.

Applications for Forum Freelance Fund bursaries are due at the end of this week, August 31st. These bursaries of $2500 and $1000 help Canadian independent journalists attend hazardous environment training courses in the U.S. and Britain.

The second will be of interest mainly to journalists in B.C. The Tyee Fellowship funds in-depth reporting on issues relevant to British Columbians. It offers $5000 for a series of three or more articles of at least 1000 words each. The application deadline is November 15.
