The Fund for Investigative Journalism’s Coronavirus Rolling Grant for U.S. Freelancers provides grants to U.S.-based freelance investigative journalists working on stories on the coronavirus that break new ground and expose wrongdoing in the public or private sector.
As the budgets of some journalism news outlets may be stressed during these uncertain economic times, potentially affecting freelance reporters, for the next few months, FIJ will offer small grants of up to $10,000, on a rolling basis, for freelance investigative projects that have a strong U.S. angle involving American citizens, government or business. All stories must be published in English and have a media outlet in the United States. No need to wait for a standard application deadline.
This post explores grant consultants’ success rates (also called ‘win rates’ or ‘hit rates’ or ‘funding rates’) for proposals for grant funding, as publicized on their websites early in 2016. It is the first post in an occasional series about what grant consultants claim for success rates.
Benchmarks for Comparison
Grant consultants who post their success rates online seem to be peculiarly high achievers. As benchmarks for enabling comparisons with their own (always much higher) rates, several grant consultants’ websites cite average success rates for all grant seekers of only 5%, 15%, 17%, 20%, or 25%. When they don’t cite a specific average rate, other grant consultants’ websites cite benchmark success rates that fall within narrow ranges such as 5%-20%, 20%-30%, or 25%-50%. Whether stated as definite ratios or as ranges, the benchmark rates stated on the websites are always considerably lower than the consultants’ declared rates.
A book that deserves a good read in your ‘spare’ time…
Rafah, a town at the bottommost tip of the Gaza Strip, has long been a notorious flashpoint in the bitter Middle East conflict. Buried deep in the archives is one bloody incident, in 1956, that left 111 Palestinians shot dead by Israeli soldiers. Seemingly a footnote to a long history of killing, that day in Rafah―cold-blooded massacre or dreadful mistake―reveals the competing truths that have come to define an intractable war.
In a quest to get to the heart of what happened, Joe Sacco immerses himself in the daily life of Rafah and the neighboring town of Khan Younis, uncovering Gaza past and present. As in Palestine and Safe Area Goražde, his unique visual journalism renders a contested landscape in brilliant, meticulous detail. Spanning fifty years, moving fluidly between one war and the next, Footnotes in Gaza―Sacco’s most ambitious work to date―transforms a critical conflict of our age into intimate and immediate experience.
