OCUFA is proud to announce that writer Simon Lewsen and photographer Chloë Ellingson have won the Mindset Award for Reporting on the Mental Health of Young People at the Canadian Association of Journalists Awards. Their article, Inside the Mental Health Crisis Facing College and University Students, was financially supported by OCUFA’s Mark Rosenfeld Fellowship in Higher Education Journalism and published in the November 2021 issue of The Walrus. The Mindset Awards celebrate journalism that challenges wrong and outdated assumptions about mental illness, provides factual information, and probes unfairness and systemic flaws.

Additional accolades are also in order for 2019 fellowship recipient Nicholas Hune-Brown, who has won a Canadian Association of Journalists Award in the Written Feature category, a National Magazine Award Gold in the Investigative Journalism category, and National Magazine Award Honourable Mention in the Long-Form Feature Writing category for his article, The Shadowy Business of International Education, which was financially supported by the fellowship. His article previously won the Canadian Hillman Prize for Journalism.
