Grants fund investigative journalism [US]
Investigative journalists in the United States can apply for a reporting grant.
The grants, sponsored by the Fund for Investigative Journalism, are intended to support investigative projects related to government accountability and environmental issues.
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.
All proposals must be submitted in English and include a detailed budget.
If the proposed project addresses an issue that has already been in the news, the applicant must acknowledge the work previously done, and explain how the project would break new ground.
The deadline is December 10.
