The deadlines are all right around the corner so apply now!

Fund For Investigative Journalism Grant
Deadline: Aug 15

The Fund’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.

All entries must be written in English.

The average grant is $5,000. The Fund will pay for out-of-pocket expenses such as travel costs or public records document fees. The Fund grants will not cover grantees’ writing fees or salaries, the costs of purchasing equipment, or other capital expenses.

Multimedia Training Course for Hispanic journalists and US journalists covering finance issues for minority and immigrant communities.
Deadline: TODAY

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is offering a Multimedia Training Course in English and Spanish. The courses are for Hispanic journalists and US journalists covering information for minority and immigrant communities. Preference will be given to journalists who cover financial issues for those communities. They will run September 2, 2011 to September 30, 2011.

This course will allow participants to have a hands-on training on a variety of topics including social media, storytelling, video editing, how to use data visualization, graphics, website development, shooting videos and more.

USC Annenberg/California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship
Deadline: Aug 26

This Fellowship is open to professional journalists from print, broadcast, and online media around the country, including freelancers. Applicants need not be fulltime health reporters, but they need to have a passion for health news (broadly defined). Applications from ethnic media journalists are strongly encouraged, as are applications proposing collaborative projects between mainstream and ethnic news outlets. Applicants must be based in the United States. Journalism students are ineligible. Please contact us at CAHealth@usc.edu if you have questions about your eligibility.

 

Knight Center/ NEA Community Arts Challenge
Deadline: August 18

If art happens in a community and no one covers it, does it have an impact? With this question in mind, Knight Foundation and National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) are seeking ideas from individuals and organizations for the development of new, sustainable models for arts journalism.

No idea is too unusual. Embedding a nonprofit reporter in a for-profit news organization? Creating a new collective to share professional work on a volunteer basis? Asking the community to decide which arts stories are best and put up the money to cover those? Have better ideas that never would have occurred to us on our own? Fill out and submit the online application form at www.communityartsjournalism.org.

 

Knight Foundation and NEA will award first round winners up to $20,000 to develop their “Idea to Action” plans to provide a clear description of your project and how it will impact arts journalism in your community including new ideas for collaboration and sustainability. From this pool, we will identify a second round of winners who will receive up to an additional $80,000 to implement their idea over a two year period.
