Application Guidelines – Kim Wall Fund

The Kim Wall Memorial Fund will distribute one $5,000 grant once a year, and the first award will be made in mid-March 2018. Winners will be paired with a mentor to assist them in their reporting.

  • Grants will be $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 once-yearly. Please keep this is 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 closing date for each application cycle, and expect grants to be disseminated 6 – 10 weeks following the application close. Applicants may apply for concurrently for Reporting Grants for Women’s Stories and the Howard G. Buffett Fund for Women Journalists.
