ICFJ, CONNECTAS offer investigative journalism grant [Latin America, Caribbean]

Posted on Jul 18, 2019 in Investigative Journalism

Journalists with at least four years of professional experience residing in Latin America (except Brazil) and the Caribbean can apply for this opportunity.

CONNECTAS and the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) have launched a new edition of the ICFJ/ CONNECTAS Fellowship.

The initiative seeks to encourage and strengthen the quality and independence of journalism in the region, offering support to high-impact investigative journalism that helps to expose abuses of power.

Candidates must submit a detailed proposal. Projects that show previous reporting work and knowledge on the topic, as well as those that suggest a component of collaboration among journalists will be specially considered.

Fellows will receive editorial support and up to US$3,000, depending on their country of residence, project's budget and scope.

The deadline is March 14.
