ASPIRING INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS (fellowship) / by Bear Guerra

Via Type Investigations:

“The one-year fellowship helps reporters complete their first substantial work of investigative reporting by providing a $16,000 award and editorial guidance from a dedicated editor at Type Investigations, formerly known as The Investigative Fund. Fellows will also receive funds to cover travel and other reporting costs, and the costs associated with attending the annual Investigative Reporters and Editors conference, as well as a one-week data reporting boot camp. They will enjoy access to research resources, legal assistance, professional mentors and assistance with story placement and publicity.

Type Investigations holds an annual competition in the spring to select the fellows, who will be expected to publish or air their findings in a U.S. media outlet within one year of the start of the fellowship. We'll be selecting five fellows for 2019. This fellowship is a one-time educational opportunity and is non-renewable.

Journalists of color are strongly encouraged to apply, as are other reporters who believe their presence would contribute substantially to diversifying investigative reporting in other ways.”

DEADLINE: March 3.
