The Fund for Investigative Journalism  is inviting journalists from around the world to apply for reporting grants. The grants are designed to support investigative projects.

The average award is US$5,000, which covers out-of-pocket expenses such as travel costs. Grants do not cover grantees’ salaries or equipment. The first half of the grant is provided when an application is approved, and the second half when the project is complete.

Recent grants funded investigations of: expensive US seed introduced to Africa, using DDT to fish the waters of Lake Volta, and newly developed Ugandan oil fields which have failed to meet expectations for reducing joblessness and poverty.

Applicants must submit proposals in English and include a detailed budget.

The deadline to apply is February 1, 2016.
