International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) - Kim Wall Memorial Fund

Deadline Date:

12/16/21 11:59 PM EST

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $5,000 to USA, Canada, or International women professional journalists to support efforts to report on worldwide subcultures. Funding may be used for reporting-related costs such as logistics, travel, visa fees, insurance, professional stipends, and payments for producers and translators. Grants will help women with Kim Wall's adventurous spirit chase down important, underreported stories.

The IWMF's Kim Wall Memorial Fund will provide two grants to journalists whose work embodies the spirit of Kim’s reporting. The grant will fund a woman reporter covering subculture, broadly defined, and what Kim liked to call “the undercurrents of rebellion.” Kim wanted more women to be out in the world, brushing up against life, and the Kim Wall Memorial Fund honors this legacy.
