The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York supports investigative work by professional journalists through several grant programs.
The Ravitch Fiscal Reporting Fellowships award up to $15,000 to reporters seeking to dig deeply into budgets, debt, pensions and other post-employment obligations, tax policy and how fiscal stress changes government priorities. Contact: Program Director Greg David
The McGraw Fellowships, part of The McGraw Center for Business Journalism, provide stipends of up to $15,000 for ambitious reporting on U.S business and the global economy. This helped freelancer Nathan Halverson of the Center for Investigative Reporting produce a two-part PBS NewsHour series on the Chinese acquisition of U.S. pork producer Smithfield Foods, which won a 2015 Emmy Award.

The Resilience Fellowship Program is a three-year project for working journalists interested in strengthening their coverage of climate change and other environmental issues. Established with financial support from the Rockefeller Foundation, the program includes several all-expenses-paid weeklong and weekend boot camps each year, as well as a fund that will pay Fellows’ travel expenses and conferences fees to support their research.
