TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2020 /CNW/ - The CJF-Globe and Mail Investigative Journalism Fellowship offers an early-career journalist an opportunity to sharpen their reporting and research skills while working on ongoing investigative journalism projects under the guidance of Globe editors and senior reporters.
Presented by The Canadian Journalism Foundation and The Globe and Mail, the fellowship is open to Canadian journalists with one-to-five years experience. The fellow will work for a year with a senior team at the Globe in Toronto to produce investigative and enterprise journalism.
"For aspiring journalists, this is a unique opportunity to hone the reporting and research skills needed for investigative journalism and to have the gift of time to delve deep into stories," says Dennis Choquette, The Globe and Mail's head of enterprise journalism.
Fellow duties include reporting and writing, research, filing Freedom of Information requests, taking photographs, shooting and editing video, and designing on multiple platforms. This is a paid 12-month fellowship.
