Teams of journalists can still apply until 14 December for a grant to investigate cross-border illicit financial flows and corruption in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Journalismfund.eu’s Money Trail Grants are available for teams of African, Asian and European journalists to investigate cross-border illicit financial flows, tax abuse money laundering and corruption.

The grants can cover both working time (for freelancers) and expenses (for freelancers and staff journalists).

Due to a one-time extension of the Money Trail Project by the different consortium partners (Journalismfund.eu, Finance Uncovered, Free Press Unlimited and Oxfam Novib), Journalismfund.eu is able to launch one last grant call for this programme.

This call targets investigations with a duration of preferably no longer than 6 months.

The total available amount this round is €50,000.

Teams of journalists can submit their application at the latest by Monday 14 December, 10 am CET (Brussels time).

Going towards +200 supported journalists

Since 2018 Journalismfund.eu has awarded already €580,000 to 190 journalists through the Money Trail grant programme.

37 supported investigations have been published in news outlets throughout the world, 32 projects are still ongoing.
