The Fellowship for Aboriginal Investigative Journalism will provide a 12-week, paid placement with the award-winning APTN Investigates team based in Winnipeg, Man., this coming spring.
Recipients will produce a 22-minute original investigative documentary providing information, analysis, and insight on an issue facing First Nation, Métis or Inuit peoples in Canada.
The journalist and APTN will retain complete editorial control over the fellowship project.
Fellowship alumni will be engaged to share observations about their experiences with Canadian audiences through activities such as events or seminars – for example, the CAJ’s annual conference.
The fellowship is open to reporters – both freelancers and staff reporters – with at least three years’ experience as a journalist. Successful applicants are expected to relocate to Winnipeg, Man., for their 12-week placement and focus exclusively on their fellowship project during the period outlined in their proposals.
Applicants must be aboriginal, permanent residents of Canada, or entitled to work in Canada.
The application deadline is 11:59 p.m. ET on Dec. 1, 2017. Learn more about this fellowship here.
