Canadian Press reporter wins $25,000 James Travers Fellowship

Canadian Press reporter Mike Blanchfield has won an international reporting grant that will allow him to probe the human cost of cluster bombs worldwide, a selection committee announced Wednesday.
Carleton University named Blanchfield the winner of the second annual R. James Travers Foreign Corresponding Fellowship, a $25,000 award designed to encourage Canadian journalists to report on key global stories.
The fellowship was established in 2011 in honour of Toronto Star columnist Jim Travers, a longtime journalist whose Parliament Hill coverage earned him plaudits from across Canada’s political spectrum.
