The workshop will provide journalists with concrete information and assistance on getting funding for investigative projects.
One of our recent grantees, Eileen Guo, will share her experience and tips. Our Executive Director, Eric Ferrero, will share suggestions and resources for journalists on applying for grants from the Fund for Investigative Journalism. We’ll be joined by our partners at the Alicia Patterson Foundation: The New Yorker’s Alexis Okeowo, who is a former fellow, and Executive Director Peggy Engel.
In Grant Writing 101 for Watchdogs, a free virtual workshop, learn from the featured panelists about how to fund your investigative projects.
