Join us Tuesday, August 11, at 1 p.m. Eastern.

The Fund for Investigative Journalism provides grants to reporters to produce high-quality, unbiased, nonpartisan investigative stories that have an impact.

The next deadline for regular grants is September 14. FIJ also provides emergency grants for investigative journalism related to the COVID-19 pandemic or police misconduct, and those are reviewed on a rolling basis. 

Join us for a 30-minute webinar to learn more about how to apply for grants and what makes a grant application successful. You’ll hear from a member of FIJ’s Board of Directors and a past grantee, and you’ll learn:

  • The criteria and requirements to be eligible for grants
  • What FIJ’s Board of Directors looks for in grant applications
  • How a recent grantee developed and presented her application

The webinar is free, and participants will be able to ask questions. The session will be moderated by Eric Ferrero, Executive Director of the Fund for Investigative Journalism. The featured speakers are:

Joe Stephens, a member of FIJ’s Board of Directors. Stephens, a veteran investigative journalist who worked on the Washington Post’s investigative team, is the Founding Director of the Program in Journalism at Princeton University.

Katti Gray, an award-winning freelance journalist who received a grant from FIJ for an investigation into the federal government’s treatment of Black farmers. Gray, whose stories have been published by CBS News, Reuters, Essence and more, directs programs at New York University’s Urban Journalism Workshop.
