Small Grants

FAIR Grants for African investigative journalists

In view of the difficulties often experienced by African investigative journalists in obtaining space, time and means for longer term investigative stories, FAIR  allocates grants for such investigative journalism projects to deserving colleagues.

The grants are intended to be used by a journalist for an investigative story in the public interest that would, without support, not see the light of day.

Applications  have to match criteria around importance of the subject, investigative methodology, newsworthiness and others. They will be adjudicated by the independent FAIR Advisory Council.

Applications are open to all investigative journalists (FAIR members as well as non-FAIR members) based and working in Africa.

For applications rules and conditions please check the Grants guidelines carefully.
