Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communications has established the Shireen Abu Akleh Emerging Reporter Award in Social Justice Journalism. This award seeks to perpetuate her dedication to truth-telling and support the next generation of reporters committed to the cause, according to the school.

            Shireen Abu Akleh was shot in May 2022 at the age of 51 while reporting for Al Jazeera at the entrance to Jenin Refugee Camp in the West Bank.

            Unlike traditional scholarships, this award invites students to submit proposals for journalism projects that focus on important social justice issues.
