Applications to the Scotiabank / CJFE Journalism Fellowship at Massey College are now closed. Thank you to all those who applied.
Launched in 2008, the Scotiabank/CJFE Fellowship is a two-semester fellowship held at Massey College, the Graduate Residential College in the University of Toronto. The Fellowship was formed through a generous grant from Scotiabank, and is coordinated by CJFE.
Run in tandem with the Canadian Journalism Fellowship Program, the Scotiabank/CJFE Fellowship commences in September, and runs until the close of the spring semester in April.
The Scotiabank/CJFE Fellow is expected to enroll in any graduate or undergraduate courses and is able to use the full facilities of the University. There are no educational prerequisites for a Fellowship; nor does the Fellow receive credits or degrees for work done during the year. Accommodation is provided by Massey College.
The objective of the Fellowship is to enhance inter-American understanding and promote dialogue through an exploration of current issues in journalism and free expression in the Americas in an academic setting.
