Women journalists can apply for this new fund.

The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting applications for the Kim Wall Memorial Fund, established in honor of the award-winning Swedish journalist who covered important, underreported stories from around the world.

One US$5,000 grant will be awarded annually to fund stories on subcultures, broadly defined, and “the undercurrents of rebellion," carrying forward Wall's legacy. Grantees will also be paired with a mentor to assist them in their reporting.

The fund may cover reporting-related costs including travel (flights, ground transportation, drivers), logistics, visa fees and payment for fixers/translators.

The deadline is Feb. 2.
