IRE Freelance Fellowship 2023

Created in 2008, the Investigative Reporters & Editors Fellowship aims to support project proposals demonstrating impact, breadth, and significance.

The fellowships intend to support work that will primarily be published or broadcast in the U.S. and in outlets where the primary audience will be at least a part of the American public. Proposals for books, documentaries, cable series, and other long-form projects are welcome to apply.

Why apply?

Three winners will receive a one-year IRE membership and the following cash prizes:

  • 1st place – $2,500
  • 2nd place – $1,500
  • 3rd place – $1,000

The judges will select three proposals that demonstrate impact, breadth, and significance. Proposals that deal with whistleblowers, business ethics, or privacy issues will be given priority.
