Fund for Investigative Journalism
The FIJ’s Board of Directors meets periodically throughout the year to consider grant applications for investigative projects and books.
It is Fund policy to pay the first half of approved grants to successful applicants, with the second half of the grant paid on evidence of publication of a finished project in accordance with the original proposal. Second half grants are not guaranteed if projects are not completed in a timely fashion or if the projects are published in a different form or in a different outlet than originally proposed.
In 2010 the Seattle photojournalist Tim Matsui received a grant to document human trafficking in Cambodia. He contributed to a multimedia series on trafficking published online by KUOW Radio (Seattle). For more information please visit: http://fij.org/grant-application/
