CNA-CIDA International Reporting Fellowships for Canadian Journalists

    Invitation for Applications

    TORONTO, Jan. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA)
invites applications for the 2009 CNA-CIDA International Reporting
    The program is designed to assist young Canadian journalists in gaining
international reporting experience on issues affecting less-developed
countries and to report what they learned through media outlets where they
work. A maximum of four Fellowships will be awarded to journalists under 30 in
2009. The deadline for applications is February 20, 2009.
    A jury composed of experts in journalism and international development
will assess applicants' proposals. Two Fellowships will be awarded to
journalists working at small market newspapers (circulation under 30,000) and
two will be awarded to journalists working at larger market newspapers
(circulation over 30,000).
    CNA-CIDA Fellows will travel to countries in Latin America that are
recipients of Canadian development assistance, such as Bolivia, Honduras,
Guyana or Nicaragua, to pursue stories of their choice in one of the following
categories: basic human needs, gender equality and integration of women in
development, human rights, democracy, good governance, environment,
infrastructure services and private sector development. Successful proposals
must contain strong Canadian angles, defined as in-depth examination of the
impact of Canadian-funded humanitarian, environmental and development efforts
in less developed countries of Latin America.
    Editorial control of the stories will be in the hands of the reporter's
newspaper, and neither CNA nor CIDA seek to exert any editorial influence
whatsoever. For further details on how to apply, eligibility criteria and
