American Journalism Review: An Investigative Reporting Partnership

 The  American Journalism Review reports on the Schuster Institute’s initiative to create fellowships for Fund of Investigative Journalism grantees:

“‘Until someone figures out how to get more hours into a day than 24, it is absolutely mandatory that we find ways to collaborate,'” says Florence Graves, founding director of the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism.

So about a year ago, when Graves sought to launch a fellowship program that would provide resources for freelance journalists working on long-form investigative projects, she brought the idea to Sandy Bergo, executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Fund for Investigative Journalism.

The union of the two agencies seems so logical — one of those ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ great ideas.”
