Bertha Challenge seeks investigative journalism fellows [Worldwide]

Posted on Jun 1, 2021 in Investigative Journalism

Investigative journalists and activists can apply for this full-time, nonresidential fellowship.

The Bertha Foundation is accepting candidates for the Bertha Challenge, which seeks to support collaborative investigations of one pressing social justice issue.

For the 2022 challenge, investigative journalists and activists will spend a year focusing on water by addressing the following question: "How is the relationship between politics and profit contributing to the degradation and loss of our freshwater and oceans, and what can be done to ensure equitable access and protection of these finite resources for people and planet?"

The fellowship offers a stipend of up to US$62,400, project funding of up to US$10,000, a connect fund of up to US$5,000 to encourage collaboration, training, mentorship and networking opportunities.

The deadline is July 3.
