Watch: How to Get a Grant from FIJ

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.

  • The criteria and requirements to be eligible for grants
