The IJB is part of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health and brings people from across journalism and academic organisations to work on investigative stories. This is the fourth fellowship that the CJF has created to support Black journalists in collaboration with other organizations.
The journalists will work for six months on an ongoing investigative project with experienced bureau editors and senior reporters. CJF has also partnered with organizations such as CBC and CTV News to provide other types of fellowship opportunities.
The fellowship is sponsored by several organizations, including Unifor, Canada’s largest private sector union, and the Jay and Barbara Hennick Family Foundation, a Canadian centre for promoting joint business and law scholarship and education.
Applications will be accepted until January 14, and the applicant chosen to receive the fellowship will be recognized at the CJF Awards in June.
