GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR IN-DEPTH STORIES ON PUERTO RICO
The Ravitch Fiscal Reporting Program at the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism is offering reporting grants to spur coverage of the many crises affecting Puerto Rico given the lack of prominence the story has been given in the mainland press.
The program has up to $30,000 in grants. Partnerships involving at least two outlets are required and multi-platform teams (like a public radio outlet and an online site) will be given preference. Puerto Rico based media need to be linked to domestic outlets to insure publication in the mainland.
The money could be given entirely to one consortium or may divided up into $10,000 grants to three groups. It can be used to pay reporter and freelance salaries, travel, document research, legal fees and help for preparing interactive and visual elements.
Express your interest by emailing program director Greg David at [email protected].edu no later than March 15. Proposals will be required by March 29 at the latest with awards to follow shortly.
Also don’t hesitate to contact Greg David with any questions.
