The Canadian Association of Journalists and Aga Khan Foundation Canada are now accepting applications for the Fellowship for International Development Reporting. The annual initiative encourages journalists to push the boundaries of daily foreign coverage – which is often focused on disaster or crisis – and set new standards for reporting on the developing world.   The Fellowship is open to all reporters – both freelancers and staff reporters – with at least five years of work experience as a journalist. Winning recipients are provided with $25,000 to undertake a substantial reporting project which helps Canadians develop a greater understanding of the complex issues facing the developing world. The application deadline for the Fellowship for International Reporting is 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 30, 2015. For more information and entry details, visit www.akfc.ca/en/get-involved/reporting-fellowship.

Together with the majority of the daily and community newspapers across the country who have expressed support for the National Council concept, we have achieved a financially stable, cost efficient and effective operational model and we are ready to launch.
