THE Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) is inviting investigative journalists to apply for its grants.
The grant is intended to support investigative projects that break new grounds and expose wrongdoing – such as corruption, malfeasance, or misuse of power – in the public and private sectors.
FIJ has also launched two new grantmaking initiatives: expedited grants for urgent stories and follow-up grants for timely stories after initial investigations.
The maximum award is US$10,000, which should cover out-of-pocket expenses like travel costs, document collection, and equipment rental. The first half of the grant is given once an application is approved and the second half is paid when the project is complete.
Investigative journalists can apply for a reporting grant.
Proposals must come from U.S.-based reporters or journalists whose stories have a U.S. angle, involving American citizens, government, or businesses. Stories must be published in English.
Proposals must be submitted in English and include a detailed budget.
The deadline for the submission of the application is January 30, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
