New grant for investigative projectsSuggest edits
The Google News Initiative and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism are partnering to create The Data-Driven Reporting Project which offers financial and training support for journalists working on document-based investigative projects.
The $2 million fund is open to support projects that serve local and/or underrepresented communities in the US and Canada, and the deadline to apply is April 8.
