Grants fund investigative journalism [Worldwide]

Deadline: 01/11/11.

Investigative journalists can apply for a domestic reporting grant.

The grants, sponsored by the Fund for Investigative Journalism, are intended to support investigative projects around the world.

The average award is US$5,000, which should cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel costs. The Fund does not cover grantees’ salaries or equipment. The first half of the grant is given once an application is approved and the second half is paid when the project is complete.

Recent grants include investigations on the effects of federal stimulus money in Florida schools, tobacco harvesting in Malawi and India’s “Berlin Wall.”

All proposals must be submitted in English and include a detailed budget.

The deadline is November 1.
