The U SPORTS Correspondent Program aims to give student-journalists from across the country the opportunity to write a variety of human-interest stories and profiles on U SPORTS student-athletes and programs. The program, which has grown each year since launching in 2016, also allows participants to promote university sports in Canada, and build their portfolio - a true “by students, for students” initiative.  

At the end of each season, U SPORTS awards the Story of the Year to the correspondent with the best article that is engaging, and has a strong storytelling narrative, while also recognizing one outstanding writer with the Correspondent of the Year award. The Globe and Mail – U SPORTS’ official media partner – serves as the presenting sponsore of the awards, supporting grassroots journalism and celebrating student sports journalism in Canada.

The national newspaper also provides a professional development opportunity to both winners.
