Open Society Foundation’s Independent Journalism and Innovation Grant Program

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 30 July 2016

The Open Society Foundation is seeking applicants for its Independent Journalism and Innovation Grant program with an aim to support 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, and develop new sources of revenue, or network with peers across borders or invisible frontiers set up by extremist groups or organized crime.

The Program aim is to improve global and regional connections, facilitate knowledge circulation, exchange ideas, and learn from various contexts.

Eligibility Criteria

Local and international organizations, networks, and informal groups involved in the production of journalism under difficult circumstances, investigative reporting, or defending freedom of expression and the protection of journalists are eligible for support.

Ineligibility Criteria

  • 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
