Journalists who make their living primarily as independent journalists can apply for a grant.
Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) is accepting applications for its Freelance Fellowship, which aims to give independent journalists a boost in the pursuit of their investigative work.
Proposals dealing with whistleblowers, business ethics and/or privacy issues will receive priority; projects involving other topics will be given serious consideration as well.
The first, second and third place winners will receive US$2,500, US$1,500 and US$1,000, respectively.
The deadline is Aug. 9.
