In 2013, The Investigative Fund, now known as Type Investigations, launched a partnership with the H.D. Lloyd Fund for Investigative Journalism, which will support up to four investigative stories annually. Applications are welcomed from independent freelancers and a roster of reporting fellows, who are fluent in English and familiar with American media standards. Projects must appear first in an American media outlet.
The Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary supports a research and reporting trip by an early-career Canadian journalist who has recently graduated from one of Canada’s university-level journalism programmes. The purpose of the $15,000 bursary is to encourage a young journalist to get off the beaten track and spend a minimum of six weeks away on a reporting assignment. The successful applicant will outline a proposal to travel abroad or to a region of Canada that is not usually well-covered by the media, and to research, then produce a substantial body of journalistic work on an important issue.
Friends and colleagues of Jim Travers, who worked as a reporter, foreign correspondent, editor and columnist at several Canadian media outlets, established a Fellowship fund to finance significant foreign reporting projects by Canadian journalists – staffers, freelancers or students – working in any medium. An annual award of $25,000 is given to a journalist to cover travel, reporting and research expenses and a stipend. The award reflects the importance that Travers attached to his six years reporting from Africa and the Middle East.
