Fund for Investigative Journalism offer grants

The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ), is inviting investigative journalists to apply for grants that are intended to support investigative projects that break new ground and expose wrongdoing – such as corruption, malfeasance or misuse of power – in the public and private sectors.

The FIJ also offers expedited grants for urgent stories, follow-up grants for timely stories after initial investigations and seed funding for preliminary reporting that can lead to full investigations.

The maximum award is US$10,000, which should cover out-of-pocket expenses such as 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 completed.




     

     

    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 next deadline to apply is September 9, 2024. The deadline for seed funding is September 20, 2024. Interested applicants can apply here.
