The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) is calling for applications for grants to support independent investigative reporting. Grants cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, document production and equipment rental. Small stipends may be considered as a part of the grant. The typical grant is $5,000.
The deadline for applications is Monday, May 5, at 5pm Eastern time.
The Board of Directors looks for stories that break new ground and expose wrongdoing – such as corruption, malfeasance, or misuse of power – in the public and private sectors.
