Deadline: 31 May 2017
Applications are currently open for Open Society Foundations grant program supporting Independent Journalism and Innovation.
The Program on Independent Journalism supports promising initiatives led by individuals or collectives that strive to improve their journalism under difficult circumstances, such as autocracy, violence, repression, or poverty—or in moments of great opportunity, such as first democratic elections, peace agreements, or massive social mobilizations.
The program also supports those enterprises that seek to further engage their audiences, experiment with storytelling, develop new sources of revenue, or network with peers across borders or invisible frontiers set up by extremist groups or organized crime.
Local and international organizations, networks, startups and informal groups involved in the production of journalism under difficult circumstances, investigative reporting, or freedom of expression and the protection of journalists are eligible for support.
Program does not support the following:
- individual journalistic projects such as documentaries, books, personal study courses, specific story proposals, or training for journalists
- specific investigations or individual projects
- project-based organisations targeting countries where journalists are deemed at risk
- country-specific conferences, journalists’ safety training, first aid or digital security trainings, labor-rights issues, or media law reform.
