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 and nonbinary 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.
“This Fund will give outstanding women journalists the ability to turn their reporting ambitions into reality.” — Howard G. Buffett
