Grants fund investigative journalism [Global]

Deadline: 10/1/12

Investigative journalists worldwide can apply for a reporting grant sponsored by the Fund for Investigative Journalism.

The average award is US$5,000, which should cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel costs.

The Fund does not cover grantees’ salaries or equipment. The first half of the grant is given once an application is approved and the second half is paid when the project is complete. All proposals must be submitted in English and include a detailed budget.

If the proposed project addresses an issue that has already been in the news, the applicant must acknowledge the work previously done, and explain how the project would break new ground.

The deadline is September 28.

  1. Hi, i recently finished my pursuit for a Diploma in Broadcast Journalism at East African Media Institute, Nairobi Kenya. I’m therefore very passionate to do investigative reporting and i had already did one concerning the reasons why local primary school pupils fail in the final exams in kenya. I did not however finished the project well because i lacked an investigative camera. It is amazing anyway. There are still many ideas i have including ‘the causes of road carnage in kenya, Cdf scandals, environment deteroriation by tobacco farmers in kenya and….i can do these projects very well, but who will fund me? I will appreciate your response. I still have no website link.
