The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) seeks proposals for investigative projects from independent journalists for grants to cover travel and other reporting expenses. The next deadline has been pushed back to Monday, October 21, 2013, at 5pm EDT.
FIJ is interested in proposals that break new ground and expose wrongdoing. Projects from ethnic media are strongly encouraged. FIJ is now accepting applications for domestic and overseas investigations.
Grants average $5,000. The awards support the costs of reporting, such as travel and document production expenses.
See the “Apply for a Grant” page for detailed instructions.
Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact executive director Sandy Bergo with questions about the process, 202-662-7564, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
