      Dear CI colleagues

      Journalists for Human Rights http://www.jhr.ca/en/ and Loyalist College
      http://www.loyalistcollege.com/ are proud to announce a new scholarship
      opportunity for emerging Aboriginal journalists in Ontario.

      http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1327515/new-scholarship-for-aboriginal-journalists

      The JHR and Loyalist College Aboriginal Reporters Scholarship will give
      two emerging Aboriginal journalists the opportunity to attend the
      Loyalist-Trent eight-week summer institute in journalism.

      Scholarship recipients will study the fundamentals of reporting and
      technical journalism skills with students enrolled in the Trent-Loyalist
      Joint Major in Journalism.

      Scholarship recipients will be selected from a talented pool of
      candidates who have participated in community-based media training during
      JHR’s Northern Ontario Initiative.

      The Loyalist-Trent Summer Institute in Journalism will take place at
      Loyalist College Campus in Belleville, Ontario throughout May and June
      2014. The scholarship will cover participants’ tuition and
      accommodation costs for the duration of the program.

      In the attached report entitlted "Buried Voices" JHR examined media
      coverage in Ontario of Aboriginal people, culture and issues between June
      1st, 2010 and May 31st, 2013. This study examines the trends, news spikes,
      and tone of media coverage focused on Aboriginal people during the
      examination time period. It's also available to download:

      As a JHR Board member and donor, I ask you to support this initiative and
      network for the development of this new program, for further info see:
