EU-Canada Graduate Internship (Brussels, Ottawa)
The European Union Delegation to Canada is pleased to announce the 2014 edition of the European Union-Canada Young Journalist Award.
The EU-Canada Young Journalist Award (YJA) was created to recognize outstanding journalistic potential among Canadian students. Since 2001, three students are selected every year to participate in a week-long study tour of various EU institutions and the Canadian Mission to the EU in Brussels. Winners will also have the chance to attend a Midday EU press briefing. Prior to the trip, which is paid for by the European Union, winners will be invited to an awards ceremony in Ottawa on 9 May, Europe Day, an event attended by ministers, the diplomatic corps and journalists.
The Institute of European Studies is starting a workshop series for PhD students named the "EuroPol Fellows" Workshop. The workshop is for PhD students who have completed their comprehensive exams and are working on European Politics. Light refreshments will be provided.
