The IWMF’s Reporting Grants for Women’s Stories, sponsored by The Secular Society, is a 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. These grants support reporting on untold stories surrounding issues that impact women and girls’ daily lives worldwide.

Through programs, fellowships, and grants the IWMF empowers women
journalists with the training, support, and network to become leaders in
the news industry. The IWMF recognizes that promoting the work and
advancing the role of women in the news media is critical to
transparency and that women journalists remain underrepresented in both
media organizations and bylines across the world. Consequently, stories
about women and the issues that affect their lives remain severely
underreported. The IWMF’s Reporting Grants on Women’s Stories initiative
empowers journalists to access untold stories through new means of
funding that emphasizes gender balanced reporting.

The Secular Society’s support for gender equity through independent reporting grants highlights the need to provide women journalists with more robust funding opportunities to pursue journalism in the public interest. The Secular Society believes that all governmental activities and those of religious organizations should be separate; they also hold that all religious beliefs are equally valid and their expression must be treated with tolerance and respect. Journalism funded by the IWMF’s Reporting Grants for Women’s Stories will contribute to the larger conversation about secularism’s role globally and focus on the challenges faced by women in a non-secular world.

Requirements:

The Reporting Grants for Women’s Stories provide opportunities for
women journalists to pursue international stories of importance through
gender-sensitive coverage of underreported topics.

  • Grants will average $5,000 USD.
  • Grants 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.

The IWMF will accept applications twice-yearly. Please keep this in
mind when creating proposed project timelines. Due to the large influx
of applications, the IWMF cannot consider time-sensitive proposals.
Please refer to the application close date for each application cycle,
and expect grants to be disseminated 6 – 10 weeks following the
application close. Applicants may apply concurrently for Reporting
Grants for Women’s Stories and the Howard G. Buffett Fund for Women Journalists.
