H.D. Lloyd Fund for Investigative Journalism

Deadline: Rolling basis
United States

In 2013, The Investigative Fund, now known as Type Investigations, launched a partnership with the H.D. Lloyd Fund for Investigative Journalism, which will support up to four investigative stories annually. Applications are welcomed from independent freelancers and a roster of reporting fellows, who are fluent in English and familiar with American media standards. Projects must appear first in an American media outlet.

Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary

Deadline: March

The Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary supports a research and reporting trip by an early-career Canadian journalist who has recently graduated from one of Canada’s university-level journalism programmes. The purpose of the $15,000 bursary is to encourage a young journalist to get off the beaten track and spend a minimum of six weeks away on a reporting assignment. The successful applicant will outline a proposal to travel abroad or to a region of Canada that is not usually well-covered by the media, and to research, then produce a substantial body of journalistic work on an important issue.

R. James Travers Foreign Corresponding Fellowship

Deadline: October

Friends and colleagues of Jim Travers, who worked as a reporter, foreign correspondent, editor and columnist at several Canadian media outlets, established a Fellowship fund to finance significant foreign reporting projects by Canadian journalists – staffers, freelancers or students – working in any medium. An annual award of $25,000 is given to a journalist to cover travel, reporting and research expenses and a stipend. The award reflects the importance that Travers attached to his six years reporting from Africa and the Middle East.
