Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) is accepting applications for its Freelance Fellowship.
The program aims to assist journalists who make their living primarily as freelancers and need assistance in conducting investigative projects.
Proposals dealing with whistleblowers, business ethics, and/or privacy issues will receive priority; projects involving other topics will be given serious consideration as well.
The first, second, and third-place winners will receive US$2,500, US$1,500, and US$1,000, respectively.
Journalists who make their living primarily as independent journalists can apply for a grant.
The deadline for the submission of applications is August 28, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
