The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is making two kinds of grants available to members of their network in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. These grants will address the increase in disinformation, censorship, and crackdowns on independent media.
- The ICFJ Pamela Howard Global Crisis Reporting Fund will offer grants of up to $3,000 to journalists providing reliable coverage on the Ukraine-Russia War, disinformation, refugee reporting, accountability reporting, and more.
- ICFJ’s Digital Tools to Support Journalists Fund will provide grants of up to $10,000 to journalists for projects that elevate reliable coverage, such as data visualizations, digital security tools, platforms to share stories more widely, databases of public information, or other innovative ideas.
You can learn more about the eligibility criteria and apply for the two grant pools here.
- Also, the new Joyce Barnathan Emergency Fund for Journalists gives financial support to help our colleagues in distress stay safe as they continue their important work. This fund, named for ICFJ’s former president, will support ICFJ’s close partners in Ukraine, Russia, and beyond who are risking their lives to report the truth.
