Brechner Reporting Fellowships to Help Journalists in Need
Applications are open for the first of what could be multiple waves of Brechner Reporting Fellowships, $2,500 grants for journalists in need adversely affected by COVID-19 to work on projects promoting government transparency.
Details and application form are here
. Applications are due by May 15, and the first class of Fellows will be announced June 1.
Brechner provides a list of open-government research-and-writing projects on which the Fellows can work and invites applicants to pitch their own. The idea is to put money directly into the hands of journalists in need, while also creating a "practical scholarship" that makes issues of government secrecy salient to policymakers and the general public.
