DEADLINE: Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) Grants
The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) encourages applications for stories that break new ground and expose wrongdoing – such as corruption, malfeasance, or misuse of power – in the public and private sectors. The Fund accepts applications for projects on domestic and international issues.
The Fund encourages proposals written for ethnic media and submitted by journalists of color. Grants average $5,000 and cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, document collection, and equipment rental. The Fund also considers requests for small stipends.
NOTE: There are two important new features:
- The maximum grant has been raised to $10,000
- Successful grantees may be eligible for a Scripps Howard Foundation mentorship.
The Winter deadline was Feb 15, 2017; Spring deadline was May 22..
The Fall deadline is Sep 25, 2017.
