Our campaign seeks to raise funds for fellowships to the Global Conference for great investigative journalists from some of the toughest, most corrupt parts of the world — for countries in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America.
Who: The Global Investigative Journalism Network – 90 organizations in 40 countries dedicated to expanding investigative reporting worldwide.
What: Fellowships to bring promising journalists from developing and transitioning countries to theGlobal Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC13) for training in state-of-the-art investigative reporting, data journalism, and cross-border collaboration.
Where: The Global Investigative Journalism Conference, the largest ever international gathering of investigative reporters, in Rio de Janeiro. The Global Conference is held only once every two years and features the world’s top experts in investigative and data journalism.
When: October 12-15, 2013, with follow-up reporting and collaborative projects.
Why: Because investigative journalism in developing countries needs your support. Investigative reporters are the “special forces” of global journalism. They’ve helped topple dictators, uncover war crimes, and curb abuses of power, but our colleagues on the front lines are under constant assault – they need the best training and the latest tools to do their jobs.
Each fellowship costs from $2,500 to $3,500 per person, which covers all expenses (airfare, hotel, registration fee, and a small per diem). At the Global Conference, they will receive intensive training by many of the world’s top investigative and data journalists.
