University of Toronto Fellowship in Journalism

Anna Nicolaou

Anna is a general assignment reporter and digital editor at The Financial Times New York bureau — which hired her right out of the Fellowship. In fact, during the Fellowship, the Overseas Press Club of New York awarded Anna one of only 14 scholarships it gives promising foreign correspondents from around the world — sending her to cover the EU for Reuters in Brussels for two months. Anna came to the Fellowship from a financial firm in Montreal, where she’d been an economist. During her time with us, she wrote more than 60 business stories for The Globe and Mail.

“The best part of the program was getting to learn something totally new with a group of people from such different backgrounds. We would discuss news stories and hear perspectives from doctors, scientists, architects, human rights advocates. I think that’s rare and wouldn’t have happened if I had been in a traditional master’s program or at another journalism school.“
