Fellowship for Latin American journalists

A new fellowship enables journalists from Spanish-speaking countries to study free for a semester at the University of Toronto. The aim of the fellowship is to help the journalists "promote a strong and free media in their home country."

"With a focus on free expression, the Scotiabank/CJFE Journalism Fellowship at Massey College will help to promote awareness among people in Latin America and in Canada, of the many difficult challenges facing journalists today in Latin America and around the world," said a statement from the Canadian Journalists for Free Eexpression, which is sponsoring the fellowship.

The deadline for applications is March 1. For more information, contact CJFE Manager Julie Payne at jpayne[at]
