Reporting Grants Available

The next deadline for proposals is Monday, December 10, 2012, 5 p.m. Eastern time.

The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) seeks grant proposals for independent investigative projects from journalists who need support for travel and other reporting expenses. FIJ awards grants three or four times each year.

FIJ is interested in proposals that break new ground and expose wrongdoing. Projects relating to government accountability, environmental issues, and economic inequities in the United States, local or regional stories with national implications, and applications from ethnic media are strongly encouraged. FIJ also invites investigations of climate change issues. Proposed projects must be journalistic in nature; FIJ does not fund commentary.
