IWMF's fund for women journalists open [Worldwide]

Posted on Jan 25, 2019 in Diversity and Inclusion

Female journalists of all nationalities can apply for a grant.

The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting applications for the Howard G. Buffett Fund, which aims to support women journalists in their reporting projects and professional development opportunities.  

Grant amounts will depend on the proposal and the inclusion of a detailed budget. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fund will no longer support projects or professional development opportunities with any travel component. 

Possible projects include exposing underreported local issues with critical global angle; undertaking collaborative, ambitious reporting projects; and pursuing virtual skills training, develop expertise, and strengthen careers.

Applicants must have three or more years of professional journalism experience. Teams of journalists may apply, but the submission must be from a woman journalist and her team must include at least 50 percent women.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
