PBS FRONTLINE launches 2019 Local Journalism Project [US]

Posted on Jun 21, 2019 in Investigative Journalism

Local news organizations interested in producing investigative reporting can apply for support.

PBS FRONTLINE is accepting applications for its 2019 Local Journalism Project.

The program will select four or five projects on the basis of the strength of the proposed investigation, the geographic diversity of the news organizations and need for outside support to complete reporting.

Local partners receive up to US$75,000 for an annual reporting salary; editorial guidance from FRONTLINE journalists; advice from FRONTLINE’s audience development team; and support for specific training for local journalists in areas that can help make investigative journalism and storytelling sustainable.

The deadline is July 15.
