Journalism organizations, networks, startups and informal groups involved in the production of journalism can apply for a grant.
The Open Society Foundations‘ Program on Independent Journalism supports promising initiatives led by individuals or collectives that strive to improve their journalism under difficult circumstances, such as autocracy, violence, repression or poverty—or in moments of great opportunity, such as first democratic elections, peace agreements or massive social mobilizations.
Possible projects include innovation in the journalism production, investigative journalism, and free and safe journalism. The foundations prioritize initiatives that offer transferable and replicable models in the field.
The program will not support individual journalistic projects such as documentaries, books, personal study courses, specific story proposals, or training for journalists; specific investigations or individual projects; and project-based organizations targeting countries where journalists are deemed at risk.
The deadline is March 31.
