Our most recent fellows cover social justice issues from the outback to the Torres Strait
In 2021, the MPC awarded $18,000 in grants to journalists as part of the Michael Gordon Journalism Fellowships program.
Our national fellowships program supports social justice journalism by funding projects newsrooms might not have the resources to cover. It is named in memory of Michael Gordon, the respected former political editor of The Age newspaper who died suddenly in February 2018.
The Michael Gordon Journalism Fellowships are supported by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund, Nine, and Robyn Carter and family.
You can help further the Melbourne Press Club's programs for advancing journalism by making a donation to our public fund.
