Grants fund investigative journalism

Investigative journalists can apply for a reporting grant.

The grants, sponsored by the Fund for Investigative Journalism, are intended to support investigative projects around the world.

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.

Recent grants include investigations on abusive labor brokers in Thailand, an American abroad who refused to be an FBI informant and the burning of trees as a renewable energy source in Canada.

All proposals must be submitted in English and include a detailed budget.

The deadline to apply is May 16.
