Concerns over COVID-19 have led to the postponement of some of our upcoming programs. Individuals currently registered for a program will be contacted directly regarding the program’s status and will be given priority registration for future programs. If you see a program that is of interest and you would like to be included on the status notification list, please email us at [email protected].
About the Event
This graduate seminar-style training program is for journalists seeking to enhance their economic knowledge and reporting skills, and network with their peers. Through lectures, simulations, and discussions, three experienced economics professors will use relevant examples from Canadian society to demonstrate how economics can help us better understand the world around us.
The Fraser Institute will provide a bursary to cover the cost of travel, accommodation (if applicable), and the program fee. The program fee includes tuition, materials, and included meals. Requesting a bursary does not affect application status and agreeing to pay the program fee does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Bursary requests can be made on the application form. Please note: Some organizations do not allow employees to accept bursaries that pay for professional development.
The Fraser Institute will pay the cost of accommodation for non-local participants for the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights of the program (April 30th, May 1st, May 2nd). Participants are considered to be “local” if they live within approximately 60 km of the program (downtown Toronto).
The Fraser Institute will provide a bursary to cover the cost of return economy travel to the program via: plane, train, bus or ferry, or for mileage and parking for local participants. The Fraser Institute will not cover other travel expenses (i.e. taxis, airport parking, non-included meals, parking tickets etc.)
There are a limited number of spaces available, and the selection of participants is at the sole discretion of the Fraser Institute.
The application deadline is February 7, 2020 at 5:00pm (PST)
