Grants Available For Investigative Journalists

Journalists around the world who need funding to do investigative stories have about two weeks to apply for a grant from the Fund for Investigative Journalism, FIJ

The FIJ is seeking grant proposals for independent investigative projects from journalists who need support for travel and other reporting expenses. Applications are now being accepted but must be submitted Monday, June 10.

The Fund usually gives grants of up to $5,000 to support the costs of reporting, such as travel and document production expenses, to practicing journalists, freelancers and others interested in doing independent investigative reporting work.

If you are interested in applying for a grant, to the FIJ website, click on “Apply for a Grant” for detailed instructions, requirements, and online application form.

Applicants who are successful will know within six weeks of the June 10 deadline when the Fund’s board will announce its grants decisions.
