About the Indigenous Reporters Program
In 2014, JHR launched the Indigenous Reporters Program, a program that supports young, Indigenous people in their journeys to becoming professional journalists. Eligible students can apply for bursaries, scholarships and internships to support their post-secondary journalism and media studies and gain professional experience.
There will be another call for bursary applicants in the spring of 2015.
