The 2018 Forum Freelance Fund competition is now open for submissions. The fund provides bursaries for Canadian freelancers to attend dangerous environment training courses.

The fund provides bursaries of up to $2500 to Canadian freelancers. Foreign freelancers doing significant work for Canadian publications are also eligible to apply.

The deadline for this annual bursary competition is April 19. Winners will be notified by May 31. Bursary winners will then have two months to choose and register for a hostile environment training course.

The Canadian Journalism Forum on Violence and Trauma runs the competition in association with the Rory Peck Trust, a U.K.-based organization devoted to promoting the safety of freelancers. The competition was founded in 2011 and has awarded 27 bursaries to freelancers since then.

More information and application requirements are available on the Canadian Journalism Forum on Violence and Trauma website.
