About Scholarship

The New Pathway is Canada’s leading Ukrainian-Canadian newspaper. Founded in 1930 the New Pathway has been the voice of the Ukrainian National Federation of Canada for 86 years. As a bilingual newspaper, The New Pathway offers many opportunities for journalists to hone their skills and obtain the experience needed to succeed as newsmakers both in Canada and abroad. The newspaper and its website newpathway.ca is the only consolidated source of online news, information, community events, job postings & business directory listings for the Ukrainian community in Canada. 

The Ukrainian Credit Union Limited Journalism Fellowship will be awarded to a young journalist, either still in school, or recently graduated. This individual will be expected to write a minimum of one monthly article for New Pathway for a minimum of one year. 

This award will be made to a candidate of Ukrainian heritage who: 

  • is enrolled full time in a post-secondary institution, or has recently graduated from, a field of study that will lead to a career in journalism (print, online, TV, radio) or photojournalism
  • shows above average academic skills
  • demonstrates leadership and community involvement
  • has been a member of UCU for at least two years


The recipient must be prepared to honour the commitment to produce a minimum of 1 article per month (12 in total) set as a requirement of this award. The editorial staff and the editorial committee of The New Pathway will work with the recipient to develop story ideas, set deadlines and to ensure the articles are of good quality. The recipient is free to contribute more articles to The New Pathway if they wish as part of this fellowship agreement. Publication of the articles will be at the sole discretion of the editorial staff of The New Pathway and the recipient will not be permitted to accept additional compensation from The New Pathway during the term of this Fellowship. At the conclusion of the Fellowship term (one year from the date awarded) the recipient may continue to contribute to The New Pathway under terms that he or she negotiates with the editorial staff of The New Pathway. 

No candidate can be awarded the same scholarship more than once.
