Deadline: Fellowship for Aboriginal Investigative Journalism

Event Date: 
December 1, 2017

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. Fellowship 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 documentary will air on APTN Investigates. Legal support, editing and a shooter will be provided by APTN.

Proposals must demonstrate an original idea, either a previously unexamined issue or a story line that shines new light on a topic that involves or impacts First Nation, Metis or Inuit peoples.

The Fellowship is open to reporters – both freelancers and staff reporters – with at least three years’ experience as a journalist. Applicants must be aboriginal, permanent residents of Canada or entitled to work in Canada.

Application deadline is 11:59 p.m. ET on Dec. 1, 2017.

The selection process is chaired by the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ), to ensure the highest journalistic standards are upheld. The Fellowship is administered by APTN, and is funded by APTN.
