Deadline extended until Oct. 15

Applications for the 2021 EU-Canada Young Journalist Fellowship, presented by the Delegation of the European Union to Canada in partnership with the Canadian Association of Journalists, are open until Oct. 15.

Three fellows will be selected to participate in a week-long 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. 

Selected applicants will have their expenses paid for by the European Union Delegation to Canada and receive a one-year CAJ membership or one-year CAJ membership renewal. 

The tour is currently scheduled for March 2022, pending the removal of COVID-19 health protocols.

Eligible candidates must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident between the ages of 18-30 and enrolled in a Canadian post-secondary institution or active in the field of journalism.
