Support the GRP

The Global Reporting Program is a year-long course offered by the University of British Columbia School of Journalism, Writing, and Media. All donations go directly towards supporting the program. UBC is a registered charitable organization, which means your donation may qualify for a tax credit. Canadian residents who wish to donate will receive a UBC tax receipt by email.
