Grants for investigative reporting open [Brazil]

Posted on April 03, 2017

Deadline: 

April 29, 2017

Journalists and students can apply for a reporting grant.

Agência Pública, Brazil's first nonprofit investigative journalism agency, has launched a journalism grants contest with a focus on marijuana. The initiative aims to stimulate the production of independent investigative journalism in the country.

The contest will select four projects that will receive BRL7,000 as well as guidance from the agency's coordinators. The winners will receive half of the grant once the project is approved and the second half when the story is complete.

Works will be published on the agency's website.

The deadline to submit proposals is April 29.
