Tyee fellowship final countdown

With just 3 days left to donate, The
‘s Investigative and Reporting fellowships
are just $1,000
shy of the fiesty publication’s $10,000 goal. The money raised will fund
two stories – one investigative and one solutions-based – on critical
issues in British Columbia. The fundraising drive closes Friday, June 11.

A post by Tyee staff reads:

“We’re nearing the end of our fundraising drive for The Tyee’s
Investigative and Reporting Fellowships and, frankly, we’re just a bit
nervous…Help support the top-notch reporting we all need. Give today and prove that people-powered media works!”

The following was excerpted from The Tyee’s site:

What are the Tyee Reporting Fellowships?

There are two. One is for investigative reporting. The other is for solutions reporting. (You choose which gets your donation by going to this page.)

Any journalist can apply for a fellowship by proposing projects to an independent, blue-ribbon panel. The panel selects the best, who are awarded $5,000 grants.

The projects must shed light on critical issues for British Columbians, with the aim of educating the citizenry.

The reporting must be investigative or focused on solutions to social and environmental challenges.

The Tyee publishes the resulting work, and shares it for free with other publications, with approval of the author.

Result: You are able to directly fund the kind of journalism you crave: hard hitting, independent, educational.

And be confident that it is connecting with ten of thousands of people, making a real impact.
