Reporting on Systemic Racism Grant

Don’t miss the opportunity to apply for this new grant from the Los Angeles Press Club! We have extended the deadline and will accept applications through Oct. 22.

The Los Angeles Press Club is funding reporting that focuses on effective responses to institutional racism. We’re looking for stories that surface and critically assess alternatives to racist structures and practices. We want stories of what is working and how communities got there.

You need to live and work in Southern California to apply.

You do not need to be a member of the L.A. Press Club, but grants are only open to freelancers or journalists with part-time work.

You should be a writer, photojournalist, videographer, TV journalist, radio journalist or podcaster. And your project should be focused on solutions journalism to be valid.

We are looking for story proposals across media platforms that report on innovative responses to historical racial injustices.

The L.A. Press Club is teaming up with Solutions Journalism Network for training. For those who are selected for funding, the Press Club and the Solutions Journalism Network will offer a mandatory specialized workshop.

The total amount available in this first round is $10,000. Each grant is up to $2,500. Half of the grant will be paid up front and the rest will be paid when the project is published.

The Los Angeles Press Club should be recognized when finished work is published or broadcast.
