Military Journalism

The Canadian Global Affairs Institute (CGAI), in partnership with the Centre for Military, Security and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary, sponsors a scholarship for 12 students to attend a nine-day certificate course on military journalism and the Canadian Forces. The course includes a combination of media-military theory in a classroom setting, coupled with field visits to armed forces regular force and reserve units.

The goal is to enhance the military education of Canadian journalists who will report on the issues facing the Canadian Forces and their activities domestically and abroad.

Students from across Canada who are in — at minimum — the third year of a university journalism degree are eligible to apply. Included in the scholarship are: air transportation to and from Calgary, accommodations, meals, and ground transportation in Alberta. For a glimpse into the program, watch this video documentary about one student's experience in the course.
