Emerging Indigenous Reporters Scholarship Fund

Spring 2016 Scholarships
• Three (3) scholarships available at $3,000 each
• Eligible to Canadian students who identify as Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) and are currently enrolled in a post-
secondary media program at a Canadian institution or who will be attending one in the fall 2016 semester.
• Deadline to apply: February 26, 2016
• Website: www.jhr.ca/

About JHR:
Journalists for Human Rights (JHR) is Canada’s leading media development organization. Through skills training and mentorship, JHR empowers journalists to report ethically and effectively on local human rights issues that would otherwise be ignored and unaddressed. Since 2002, JHR has trained over 13,500 journalists in 23 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.
In 2013, JHR launched its first project in Canada, The Northern Ontario Initiative. The project worked in remote Indigenous reserve communities across Ontario training citizens to report on, and from, their own communities. It also connected them to interested editors and news directors and taught them how to sell their freelance work to mainstream media outlets. The objective of this project was to build relationships between Indigenous communities and media outlets to create greater awareness of Indigenous culture, peoples and issues amongst non-Indigenous Canadians by strengthening Indigenous voices in Canadian media.

About the Indigenous Reporters Program:
In 2014, JHR has launched the Indigenous Reporters Program. This program aims to ensure young, Indigenous media students will have the opportunity to be supported throughout their journey to becoming established Canadian journalists. Overall, Indigenous People make up

4.3 per cent of the Canadian population, yet Indigenous journalists make up far less than 1 per cent of the employed media population. A large portion of the Indigenous Reporters Program is focused on awarding scholarships for Indigenous students to attend post-secondary school and study journalism and thus further their journalism ambitions. One of the main objectives of the program is to better build the professional capacity of Indigenous peoples pursuing careers in media and to support the media sector in developing job opportunities and economic incentives for those people.

How to Apply
To apply for one of the three spring 2016 scholarships, please send:
• a one page letter of intent outlining who you are, what community you are from, what school and program you are enrolled in, why you are studying media and what your career goals are;
• at least one reference letter;
• a copy of your transcript;
• and proof of enrollment (if not starting until fall 2016, you may include an acceptance letter)

Deadline: February 26, 2016
Send application package to:
Hannah Clifford, Programs Assistant
Indigenous Reporters Program
