FIJ offers grants for coronavirus reporting [US]

Posted on Apr 3, 2020 in COVID-19 Reporting

Journalists of color covering the impact of the coronavirus in U.S. ethnic communities are invited to apply for this program. 

The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) seeks proposals on the coronavirus crisis that break new ground and expose wrongdoing in the public and private sectors.

Grants will average US$5,000 and are intended for out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, document collection and equipment rental. FIJ also considers requests for small stipends.

Proposals will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
