Grants available for investigative reporting [Africa]

Posted on May 5, 2023 in Investigative Journalism

Journalists or teams of journalists can apply for an investigative journalism grant.

The African Investigative Journalism Conference, which will take place in November, has launched a grant program to enable journalists to investigate health issues in seven African countries: Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania, Lesotho, Swaziland and South Africa. 

The grants are intended to enable and encourage knowledge and awareness of health issues among journalists, to encourage the exposure of health issues and to give journalists the time and resources to do in-depth, investigative reporting.

Grants from US$1,000 to US$3,000 will be awarded.

The deadline is May 15.
