Fund grants support journalism education by giving students the tools and resources necessary to produce impactful work.
The Scripps Howard Fund is offering more than $350,000 in journalism grants to universities and nonprofits through two new programs that help advance investigative journalism and increase diversity and inclusion in the industry.
Diversity and Inclusion in journalism grants
The Scripps Howard Fund is seeking innovative ideas to get post-secondary students from diverse backgrounds invested in journalism and foster environments where all journalism students can actively participate and feel welcome.
Diverse backgrounds include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, military background and or membership in another group that is under-represented in journalism.
Universities and nonprofit organizations can apply for one-time grants of up to $30,000 to address this challenge. Only U.S. based programs are eligible.
A second round of grants for this purpose will be offered in fall 2023. The deadline to apply is Sept. 30. To apply, click here.
Special consideration will be given to proposals that offer experiential learning as an element of the project.
The Fund will partner with a university or nonprofit organization to create a program to teach college students open-source investigative journalism, a way to use publicly available information to investigate.
The winning proposal will receive a four-year grant for up to $300,000 to help launch the program no later than the 2024-25 academic school year.
The grant will be structured as follows:
