The Embassy of Canada, with SunLife Financial Inc., sponsors the Marshall McLuhan fellowship named after the Canadian communication theoretician.

The fellowship consists of a two-week familiarization and lecture tour of Canadian media and academic institutions, and later, a lecture tour of selected Philippine universities under the auspices of the Embassy of Canada in the Philippines.

Seventeen Filipino journalists have been McLuhan Fellows since 1997.

The 2014 McLuhan Fellow and the Outstanding Journalist of 2013 were chosen by a committee of senior journalists who considered candidates based on CMFR’s review of the 2013 press coverage of major public issues in the Philippine Journalism Review Reports online, and on recommendations from the editors of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao media organizations.
