Tyee Offers Fellowships to Indy Journalists

Four fellows (in a gender neutral way, of course) will receive $5,000 fellowships from The Tyee’s new fellowship program.

The idea is, you apply by April 9 with your idea about something to study that’s important and B.C.-specific. You promise to write at least three articles and get to the bottom of some boondoggle or quirky off-beat situation. The thing you’re reporting on has to relate to making B.C. a better place to live and work and be. I’m paraphrasing poorly, of course — read the application (PDF) for more specifics.

It’s all made possible thanks to a starting set of donations valued at more than $36,000, managed by the Tides Canada Foundation, a national public foundation. Editor David Beers says the program will be renewed annually, so pick a particularly unsolvable problem and you might be able to write about it next year, too!

If there’s something you’ve been wanting to learn about, to tell people about, and heck, maybe even to change for the better, get the Tyee in your corner and go for it!
