SCOOP helps investigative journalists in Ukraine and Moldova. The main idea is to help and support investigative journalists and develop a network between professional journalists in the region, country and to the international community of investigative journalists.
To apply for a grant, the reporter must have a good idea for a journalistic investigation and describe this in detail with budget in an application.
The participants are selected by the the Ukrainian coordinator and his/her Scandinavian counterpart. The selection is based on the quality of the proposal and the originality of the proposed investigation. We support both local, regional, national and international investigations.
SCOOP was born i Ukraine in 2003 and over the years spread the many other countries in Eastern Europe, Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia. We have built a large international network of investigative journalists and can help you get in contact with professional and trustworthy colleagues in the region. We are part of the annual investigative journalism conference, the Mezhyhirya Festival, and give financial support to the annual prize for investigative journalism, the Proxy Prize.
