We fund and administer a monthly $1,000 micro-grant to a journalism project that commits a crazy, brilliant, positive act of journalism in the public interest. This Awesome Journalism Grant is available to anyone, anywhere, in any medium.
The definition of “awesome” is intentionally left vague and up to the imagination. It could mean making someone stop and think, or spreading information or something else — think social good, an informed society, and beyond!
The grant has no strings attached (other than doing something awesome and making it freely and widely available). This is not a loan or an investment from the Fourth Estate or the Awesome Foundation, this is a grant and we do not claim any ownership or future claims on your idea, and we don’t want the funds repaid – ever.
We value action, detest bureaucracy and love awesomeness!
The application takes 15 minutes or less. We select one application for the monthly grant. If your submission is not chosen for the month you are applying remember you can apply the following month.
We have a few simple rules:
