The Fund for Investigative Journalism is accepting proposals for grants of up to $10,000 for stories that break new ground and uncover wrongdoing in the public or private sectors.
Proposals are due Monday, January 30, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Journalists whose proposals are accepted will be notified (and receive first payment) in March.
The Fund will hold a short webinar on how to apply for grants on Friday, January 13, at noon Eastern. Amy Pyle, a member of the Fund’s Board of Directors and USA TODAY’s National Investigations Editor, will discuss what the Board looks for in grant proposals, and the Fund’s Executive Director, Eric Ferrero, will provide information and tips on how to apply. Click here to register for the webinar.
Grants are paid directly to investigative reporters or media outlets for expenses related to investigations, including travel costs, records-related fees, document collection and analysis costs, reporters’ time and other expenses. Grants can be used for print or online articles, television or radio stories, books, podcasts and documentaries.
