The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), with support from The Secular Society, is offering Reporting Grants for Women’s Stories. The grant is open to women journalists from anywhere in the world with three or more years of professional experience.

The IWMF Reporting Grants for Women’s Stories is a new funding initiative supporting journalism produced by and about women. In an era of increased globalization, the need for varied coverage of gendered topics is critical to a free and representative press.

The grants provide opportunities for women journalists to pursue international stories of importance through gender-sensitive coverage of underreported topics.

IWMF Grants will average US$5,000 and it will be awarded to cover reporting-related costs including travel (flights, ground transportation, drivers), logistics, visa fees, and payment for fixers/translators.

All applications must be filled out online via the IWMF’s online application system.

Applications close on June 29, 2018.
