Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) Grants


The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) invites 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.

Proposals written for ethnic media and submitted by journalists of color are encouraged. Grants are awarded up to $10,000 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.
