DEADLINE: Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) Grants

Event Date: 
September 24, 2018

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.

Previous 2018 deadlines were Feb 5 and May 7. Next deadline is Sep 24, 2018.
