Promoting the work and advancing the role of women in the news media across the globe is critical to transparency and a diversity of voices.
The Howard G. Buffett Fund for Women Journalists, the first funding initiative of its kind, enables the IWMF to dramatically expand its support of women journalists. Established with a $4 million gift from the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, the Fund supports projects including educational opportunities, investigative reporting and media development initiatives.
Starting from January 2020, the Fund for Women Journalists will accept applications on a rolling basis. Apply here.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fund for Women Journalists program will no longer support projects or professional development opportunities with any travel component. We will focus on supporting reporting projects and professional development opportunities within the following parameters, until further notice:
· Expose under-reported local issues with critical global angles
· Undertake collaborative, ambitious reporting projects
· Pursue virtual skills training, develop expertise, and strengthen careers
If you have questions to the Fund, please email program manager Jin Ding at email@example.com.
“This Fund will give outstanding women journalists the ability to turn their reporting ambitions into reality.” — Howard G. Buffett
