Cost and Earnings
Because we are admitting only 15 students, the Fellowship in Global Journalism will cost roughly $35,000 per student to deliver. But the Fellowship will pay $20,000 of that cost for every student admitted to the program. Fellows thus pay tuition of only $15,000 for their eight-month program.
Financially, this Fellowship differs from conventional Master of Journalism programs in three key ways:
- Fellows are out of the full-time work-force for only eight months (not two years, as in the case of many graduate journalism programs).
- Fellows will also have the opportunity to earn some of their costs back through freelance work that we will facilitate during the program itself.
- And because we want to encourage a balance of foreign and Canadian students in the program, both pay the same tuition fee
Financing Your Costs
- Fellows who are Canadian citizens or landed immigrants may be eligible for student lines of credit from major Canadian banks.
- Fellows who are neither Canadian citizens nor landed immigrants may be eligible for the same lines of credit if their loans are co-signed by a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant; or they may be eligible for financial support and loans from their home country.
- Because this is a certificate program, Fellows are not eligible for financial aid from the University of Toronto or the Government of Ontario.
