Since November 30, 1971.

The Michael Gordon Fellowships is a national program to enable social justice journalism. The program honours Michael Gordon, the respected former Age political editor who died suddenly in February 2018. Annual grants totalling as much as $30,000 are being made to fund reporting projects in areas such as Indigenous affairs, migration policy, human rights and international development.

Due to COVID-19 we have not yet launched a 2020 program round. Please check back here in coming weeks for updates. 

The Michael Gordon Fellowships are proudly supported by:

We also acknowledge the support of Grant Rule and Sophie Oh and the Ray & Margaret Wilson Foundation.
