(Toronto, ON – May 17, 2012) – There’s still time to apply for the Peter Gzowski Life Literacy Fellowship! This fellowship, supported by ABC Life Literacy Canada, is a great opportunity for aspiring journalists and journalism students. The fellowship provides grant money to help one successful applicant research and develop a story about adult literacy.
Last year, Valerie Mutton a lawyer from Bomanville, Ontario was granted the fellowship and used the funds to assist in her research regarding low literacy levels in family court systems. You can read Valerie’s story in The Lawyers Weekly here.
The Peter Gzowski Life Literacy Fellowship was established in 1993 to help raise awareness about adult literacy in Canada by providing one successful applicant with a financial grant of $3,000 to do just that. The funds can be used to help develop the story, fund any necessary research and assist with the article’s publication.
