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.

Applications for the second round of grants are now closed.

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.
