Region :North America Country :Canada Topic :Specialized Reporting

The Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy is designed to further both the tradition of liberal journalism in Canada and the commitment to social and economic justice of Joseph E. Atkinson.

The Fellowship provides a grant for a Canadian journalist to undertake a year-long research project on topical public policy issue. While the Fellowship is interested in any number of topics, and is open to new and imaginative ideas for research, it favours issues that are in the forefront of public debate and have implications for Canadian society at large (e.g., poverty, unemployment, trade agreements, welfare, child care, etc.). The Fellowship will not consider projects in history, anthropology, literature, folklore and related areas.

The annual competition for the Atkinson Fellowship is open to all full-time Canadian journalists in print or broadcast media. Preference is given to those applicants who have already achieved some distinction in reporting on policy issues. The Fellowship is held for a one-year period (from September 1 to August 31) and is not renewable. The stipend is $75,000. A budget for research expenses up to $25,000 will also be considered. The Fellow will be expected to exclude other journalistic activities during this period.

For more information visit the Atkinson Web site.
