The Fellowship in Global Journalism will cost roughly $27,000 per student to deliver. But the Fellowship will pay $10,000 of that cost for every student admitted to the program. Fellows thus pay tuition of only $17,000 for their eight-month program. Fellows continue to receive free coaching for two years after the program, through monthly on-line bureau meetings.
Financially, this journalism program differs from conventional Master of Journalism programs in four key ways:
1) Fellows can continue some work in their own disciplines, throughout the program. We’ll help you balance the pace of your news reporting with the pace of your professional or academic work to meet your own goals and needs – and to manage any potential conflicts. It is important to note, nonetheless, that the Fellowship should be your main focus while you are in it:
2) You do not need to move here. Fellows who are not based in Toronto can return home after October 6, when the five-week boot-camp ends. We teach journalism both on-site and through our distance education platforms.
3) We can support admitted Fellows with their applications for grants and funding from organizations in their field.
4) Because we want to encourage a balance of foreign and Canadian students in the program, both pay the same tuition fee.
