The Gordon N. Fisher/JHR Journalism Fellowship at Massey College in the University of Toronto

The Gordon N. Fisher/JHR Journalism Fellowship is an annual opportunity for a journalist from Sub-Saharan Africa or the Middle East to participate in the William Southam Journalism Fellowship Program at Massey College in the University of Toronto

About the Fellowship

The Fisher Fellowship runs in tandem with the William Southam Journalism Fellowships and takes place over one
academic year – September to May – at the University of Toronto.

Fellows are able to choose from a wide range of university courses and activities, are free to audit any graduate or
undergraduate courses and have access to the University’s many facilities. Fellows live at Massey College, a
multi-disciplinary graduate residential college in the University of Toronto. There are no educational prerequisites for a
Fellowship, nor do Fellows receive credits or degrees for work done during the academic year. The program typically
requires auditing at least two academic courses a semester; one academic course must be taken in full and all assignments

The Fisher/JHR Fellow meets regularly with his or her Canadian counterparts in informal seminars to discuss issues with
speakers from a wide variety of professions. They also participate in full in any trips organized as part of the program.
To obtain the maximum benefit from the program, Fellows agree to refrain from professional work, including writing and
broadcasting, during the period of the Fellowship. Personal holidays are restricted to University holiday periods.

Applicants should note that the University of Toronto, St. George campus, does not offer courses in Journalism.

The Fellowship underwrites:

(1) an eight-month stipend that will replicate the successful applicant’s salary along with any costs associated with the
program. The first monthly installment will commence with an end-September payment and conclude with the
end-April payment;

(2) all university fees;

(3) travel expenses up to the cost of economy airfare to and from Toronto for the Fellow;

(4) travel expenses for organized trips during the program;

(5) a winter clothing allowance;

(6) a book allowance.

Please note that there are no provisions for family members.

Funding for the Gordon N. Fisher/JHR Fellowship has been provided by a generous gift from the Alva Foundation. The program is administered by Massey Collegein the University of Toronto, the host organization in Canada, with the support of Journalists for Human Rights.
