Deadline: 16 December 2019
The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) is currently accepting applications for its 2020 Kim Wall Memorial Fund to provide a $5,000 grant to a journalist whose work embodies the spirit of Kim’s reporting.
The grant will fund a woman reporter covering subculture, broadly defined, and what Kim liked to call “the undercurrents of rebellion.” Kim wanted more women to be out in the world, brushing up against life, and the Kim Wall Memorial Fund honors this legacy.
This fund was developed in the spirit that Kim would have wanted more women to be out in the world, brushing up against life. Through this grant, the IWMF seeks to help bend the world toward Kim’s vision.
