John Honderich, chair of the board at Torstar, presented the 2014 Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy to Gillian Steward, former managing editor of the Calgary Herald and now a columnist with the Toronto Star and teacher at Mount Royal University, at the 17th Annual CJF Awards.
Since 1988, the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy has been awarded to a leading Canadian journalist. Fellows are supported for a period of one year--from September 1 to August 31--to investigate a current policy issue and write a series of articles for publication in the Toronto Star. During this period, the Fellow works exclusively on his or her project and receives a stipend of $75,000 and up to $25,000 for research expenses.
The award is jointly sponsored by The Atkinson Charitable Foundation, the Toronto Star and The Honderich Family.
