CJF-Globe and Mail Internship Program for Investigative Journalism launched with deadline of February 23

The CJF-Globe and Mail Internship Program for Investigative Journalism brings a journalist to The Globe and Mail newspaper to pursue a six-month investigative journalism project under the guidance of the newspaper’s editors and senior reporters. The annual internship allows a Canadian journalist early in his or her career (with one to five years’ experience) to work with a senior team at The Globe and Mail in Toronto. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for the intern to expand his or her investigative journalism skills with the help of some of the country’s best reporters and editors.

Intern duties include reporting and writing, research, filing FOI (Freedom Of Information) requests, taking photographs, shooting and editing video, and designing on multiple platforms. The candidate will receive a stipend of $750 per week for the six-month internship. To be eligible, candidates should have completed at least one professional news media job or internship at a daily news organization. The internship will begin in June of 2018.

The online application must include:

  • A cover letter addressing how the candidate will contribute to the process/project. Please note that a story pitch is not necessary.
  • Applicant’s resumé.
  • Work examples (5-7 pieces that demonstrate skills and range of experience).
  • Recommendation letter from at least two professionals or school references.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 23, 2018.
