|Apply to FIRE
Earlier this month, Project Word announced a new round of applications for FIRE's Virtual Newsroom, which awards stipends of $2,500 to $5,000 to five reporters. Since then, FIRE has received additional funding for reporters. As a result, Project Word will be increasing the amount of individual stipends available to FIRE awardees.
The same number of reporters will receive stipends — five of the 10 Virtual Newsroom applicants selected. But the maximum amount of the stipend is now up to $10,000.
The new stipend amount is the only change in the application process; everything else remains the same.
In addition to the Virtual Newsrooms, FIRE offers an Editorial Consultancy program. The two programs have separate applications.
The deadline for both applications is Thursday, March 23, 2017.
