FIJ Schuster Institute Diversity Initiative Grant and Fellowship

FIJ Schuster Institute Diversity Initiative Grant and Fellowship

The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) and the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University are accepting applications for a project designed to broaden opportunities for diverse journalists in independent investigative reporting.The initiative invites applications from two communities: Independent investigative journalists of color and women journalists based in the United States. With the support from the Ford Foundation, grants and matching fellowships will be offered to help journalists of diverse backgrounds widely recognized as underrepresented in the ranks of U.S. The Fund for Investigative Journalism will provide up to $10,000 to pay the expenses of reporting a specific investigative story, covering costs such as travel, document fees, equipment rentals, and small stipends.

The Fund for Investigative Journalism was founded in 1969 by the late Philip M. Stern, a public-spirited philanthropist who devoted his life “to balancing the scales of justice,” in the words of a friend. Stern was convinced small amounts of money invested in the work of determined journalists would yield enormous results in the fight against racism, poverty, corporate greed and governmental corruption.
