JHR & Cabin Radio Story Bursary
Five bursaries worth $600 each will be awarded to Indigenous NWT residents aged 15-24. The bursaries will be accompanied by mentorship from Cabin Radio staff to turn stories from ideas to a published reality.
We invite Indigenous youth from all NWT communities to tell us what they'd like to report on in their community. Applications will be accepted until July 31, 2020.
Five winning submissions will be chosen in August 2020. Cabin Radio will spend the following three months helping successful applicants to report on the issues their application identified.
We particularly encourage submissions that identify issues likely to affect a broad range of Indigenous youth in northern Canada. Submissions may or may not be related to Covid-19.
Though you can only be selected once, you may apply more than once with different ideas. Each application must include a summary of your story idea that's up to 500 words long, explaining the issue you would like to report on. What's happening, why does it interest you, who would you speak to for your report, and how do you think reporting on this will help to create change where you live?
