The Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations (OCUFA)—representing 17,000 university faculty and academic professionals in 30 faculty associations across Ontario—is excited to announce the third annual OCUFA Fellowship in Higher Education Journalism, valued at $10,000.
The Fellowship is intended to help address the lack of informed investigative reporting on Canadian higher education issues. It provides financial support to those wishing to pursue in-depth journalism in this area.
The OCUFA Fellowship in Higher Education Journalism is open to full-time, part-time, and freelance journalists (including students) who wish to pursue an investigative research project in the area of Canadian higher education. Applications focusing on any topic within this area are welcomed, including public policy, labour relations, the academic labour market, governance, financing, teaching, research, librarianship and information management, demographics, education quality, free speech and academic freedom, equity and diversity, Indigeneity, and reconciliation.
The deadline for applications is March 22, 2021. The Fellowship is valued at $10,000 and administered by OCUFA, with the first half payable at the start of the project and the second half upon completion. The winner will have to complete and publish and/or broadcast the project within a year of being granted the Fellowship. OCUFA will not exercise any editorial control or judgment over the work produced.
