The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) is seeking grant applications for Investigative Projects. FIJ makes grants to independent and freelance investigative reporters to produce stories that break new ground and expose wrongdoing.
The Fund for Investigative Journalism’s role in assisting journalists is limited to making grants. The Fund assumes no liability for the legal and/or safety risks undertaken by journalists in the course of their reporting.
The Board of Directors looks for: stories that break new ground and expose wrongdoing – such as corruption, malfeasance, or misuse of power – in the public and private sectors.
The grants cover expenses such as travel, document fees, and equipment rental and may include small stipends.
- The Fund encourages proposals written for ethnic media and submitted by journalists of color.
- Grants average $5,000 and cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, document collection, and equipment rental.
- The Fund also considers requests for small stipends.
- To be considered, foreign-based story proposals must come from US-based reporters or have a US angle, involving American citizens, government, or business.
- All stories must be published in English – either by an English language publication or outlet, or by an outlet that has an affiliation with an English language site.
