DEADLINE: Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) Grants

Event Date: 
February 8, 2021

The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) invites applications three or four times per year 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.

Proposals written for ethnic media and submitted by journalists of color are encouraged. Grants of up to $10,000 cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, document collection, and equipment rental. The Fund also considers requests for small stipends.

View a 30-minute video about how to apply for grants successfully, featuring a Board member who votes on grants and a journalist who applied for a grant successfully.

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.

2021 deadlines: Feb 8; more TBA
