Deadline approaches for Peter Gzowski Life Literacy Fellowship

May 31 is the deadline for applications to the Peter Gzowski Life Literacy Fellowship, presented by ABC Life Literacy Canada.

The Peter Gzowski Life Literacy Fellowship was developed to generate public awareness of adult literacy in Canada by providing one journalist with a financial contribution of $3,000 to research and develop a story on adult literacy in Canada. The fellowship follows in the tradition of The Peter Gzowski Literacy Award of Merit (PGLAM) which was founded by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1993 in honour of the late veteran broadcaster and literacy advocate Peter Gzowski.

Peter Gzowski was a 3-time National Magazine Award-winning writer for his work in Saturday Night and Toronto Life in the early 1980s. He was perhaps best known as the host of CBC Radio’s This Country in the Morning and Morningside, and author of many books of non-fiction. He was a tireless advocate and fundraiser for adult literacy in Canada, and also a friend and supporter of the Canadian magazine industry.
