    The Foundation awarded four grants this year of $10,000. The Media
Fellowships are part of the new Asia Pacific Foundation Research Grants
Program, funded through the proceeds of an endowment established by the
Government of Canada and designed to stimulate informed discussion on Canada's
relations with Asia.

    
    The 2007 Media Fellows are:

    -  Sophie Cousineau, La Presse (Research will take place in China)
    -  Duncan Mavin, Financial Post (Research will take place in China)

    "The jury was delighted with both the quality and quantity of the
response to the competition," said Paul Evans, the Foundation's Co-CEO and
Chairman of the Executive Committee. "We congratulate the recipients of the
Media Fellowships on outstanding proposals. These Fellowships offer Canadian
journalists the opportunity to experience first-hand the fastest growing and
most dynamic region of the world. Through their work, the larger Canadian
community will become better informed about Asia and the Canada-Asia
relationship."
