Sara Mojtehedzadeh and Melissa Renwick are the 2019 recipients of annual R. James Travers Foreign Corresponding Fellowship

Sara Mojtehedzadeh receives the 2019 Fellowship on behalf of her co-recipient Melissa Renwick.

Toronto Star labour reporter Mojtehedzadeh and independent documentary photographer Melissa Renwick plan to use the fellowship to bring Canadians a rarely seen perspective on Canada’s migrant worker program, told from the vantage point of spouses and children left behind in Mexico. It will ask whether a program that supposedly empowers families is in fact sometimes destroying them.
