IPYS Launches Travel Grants to Rio for Latin American Journos

ipysThe Instituto Prensa y Sociedad (IPYS), one of the three partner organizations behind the Global Investigative Journalism Conference, has launched a fellowship program for journalists to attend the Latin American Conference on Investigative Journalism (COLPIN) in Rio de Janeiro (October 12-15). For the first time COLPIN will be held simultaneously with the Global Conference, as well as with the national congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association.

The fellowships are part of the 4th Advanced Course for Investigative Journalism, co-organized by IPYS and Transparency International. A group of 12 journalists from across Latin America will be selected after proposing projects on organized crime in the region. Those chosen will receive special training and mentoring, and attend specialized sessions during the Conference.

capiApplicants should submit an investigative project on organized crime that could be developed within four months. IPYS will evaluate the projects and finance some of them with up to US$6,000. The applicants should send a summary of the project, along with a biography, a photograph, and two samples of their investigative work. Deadline to apply is August 13.
