For Journalism Professionals

Professional Development Support & Seminars

Are you a journalism professional, working for a news source in BC? Or maybe you’re a journalism educator in the province?

You could be eligible to receive a Professional Development Fellowship in order to take a course(s) to further your journalism career or receive funding to embark upon a self-defined project/area of study. Over the course of the year the Foundation also provides free educational seminars for those in the journalism industry – just two ways the Foundation seeks to foster excellence in journalism. Check out the information below.




The Foundation offers eligible journalists the opportunity to attend the prestigious Poynter Institute in Florida for short-term professional development courses, or to create a self-defined fellowship for other studies/research.



At various times in the year the Foundation holds educational seminars for working and student journalists, as well as for journalism educators and those involved in the profession.
