Investigative journalists can apply for a reporting grant.
The grants, sponsored by the Fund for Investigative Journalism, are intended to support investigative projects that break new ground and expose wrongdoing – such as corruption, malfeasance or misuse of power – in the public and private sectors.
The average award is US$5,000, which should cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel costs. The Fund does not cover grantees’ salaries or equipment. The first half of the grant is given once an application is approved and the second half is paid when the project is complete.
Proposals must come from U.S.-based reporters or international journalists whose stories have a U.S. angle, involving American citizens, government or businesses. Stories must be published in English – either by an English language publication or outlet, or by an outlet that has an affiliation with an English language site.
Proposals must be submitted in English and include a detailed budget.
The deadline to apply is May 22.
