Fund for Investigative Journalism



What they do

- Back proposals for up to 50 investigative reporting projects per year.

General advice for winning a grant

-  All applications are reviewed by a board of 12 experienced investigative journalists , so make sure your proposal is geared towards producing an “investigative” story. 

-  Is your proposed story groundbreaking? If you’re reporting on something that others have already written about extensively, how are you approaching the theme in a new way?

- Make sure your proposed investigation is doable, and make your case for why you are the best person to do it. 

You’re a good fit if....

- While investigative stories are challenging to produce, emerging and early-career journalists are encouraged to apply.
