TLN Graduate Fellowship

The TLN Graduate Fellowship will be annually offered to one graduate student at York University who is nominated by a CERLAC Fellow, owing to their investment in communicating with the public about research relating to Latin America and the Caribbean. As a TLN Graduate Fellow, this student will serve as a knowledge hub and storyteller within the Centre with the mission of gathering and sharing human-interest stories from both student and faculty researchers on topics related to Latin America and the Caribbean, their diasporas, and their impact on Canada and the rest of the world. The TLN Graduate Fellow will communicate these stories through various multimedia formats (such as videos, short stories, podcasts) for the purposes of broadening their reach globally, so they are accessible to anyone who is interested in learning about topics related to Latin America and the Caribbean. Each TLN Graduate Fellow will be appointed for three terms (Fall, Winter, and Summer) and they will be expected to produce a minimum of six (two per term) multimedia pieces
Application Process
Students will be nominated by CERLAC Fellows for this honour. Each nominee will submit a 250 to 500-word statement expressing their interest in and vision for serving as a TLN Graduate Fellow. They will be selected based on the clarity, creativity, and maturity of their storytelling vision as well as their commitment to research in the region
