Via Fund for Investigative Journalism:

“As part of its commitment to expanding opportunities for diverse journalists, the Fund for Investigative Journalism is partnering with the National Association for Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) and the Miami Herald Media Company for a fellowship program to start in 2020. The three-month fellowship comes with a $30,000 grant, which can be used for reporting expenses and a stipend. The deadline to apply is Oct. 7, 2019. The winner will be notified by December 31, 2019. The Miami Herald Media Company will provide the fellow with workspace and other editorial support.

Your proposal should be thorough and compelling. The project should dig into issues of consequence and of interest to readers of the Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald. “What we are looking for are proposals for stories that uncover something we didn’t know and engages our readers,” said Nancy San Martin, managing editor of el Nuevo Herald. The story will be published in both Spanish and English, in print and online, in the Miami Herald and in el Neuvo Herald.

Present a narrative no longer than three pages to explain what your investigation aims to uncover, why the investigation is important, how you would go about it and why the story is groundbreaking. If the topic has received previous coverage, explain how your story is different.”

DEADLINE: October 7.
