The Fund for Investigative Journalism is accepting proposals for grants of up to $10,000 for stories on any topic that break new ground and uncover wrongdoing in the public or private sectors.
Proposals are due Monday, May 10, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Journalists whose proposals are accepted will be notified (and receive first payment) in June.
Grants are paid directly to investigative reporters or media outlets for expenses related to investigations, including travel costs, filing fees, document collection and analysis costs, reporters’ time and other expenses. Grants can be used for print or online articles, television or radio stories, books, podcasts and documentaries.
The Fund for Investigative Journalism is holding “open office hours” via Zoom every Friday at noon Eastern to answer questions about the application process and provide assistance. Join here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85296412666
