Get Support for your Investigation in 2016

Do you have an idea for an investigative journalistic story, but no money to produce it? If you are a Russian journalist, you can apply for both funding and training for investigative journalism.

We – the International Media Support, IMS, in Copenhagen, the Associations of investigative journalism in Denmark and Sweden, FUJ and FGJ, in cooperation with the Regional Press Institute, RPI, in Saint Petersburg, Russia and Fojo Media Institute, Sweden – are happy to invite you to apply for support to an investigative journalism report you would like to conduct in your region. The investigation should be useful to your community and interesting to your audience. The work should be intended to be published in a mass media you regularly work for, such as print media, radio, television or web based media.

We offer you assistance to plan your investigation, to participate in a training program at Fojo Media Institute in Kalmar, Sweden, with Russian-speaking trainers, and a follow up master class seminar when your piece has been published. During the work you can get support from our experienced trainers in Russia. You can also apply for financial support for various costs during the work, such as travel or external analysis, and a small fee.

SCOOP Russia is funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Sida. This is the sixth year SCOOP Russia is running, and Sida is supporting the program until 2019.

The supported projects will also be published on the SCOOP Russia website. On the website you can see examples of previous investigations in Russian language as well as in English. If you have questions, you can find contact details on the web page.

Deadline for applications is February 15th. The application form shall be properly filled and sent by e-mail to info@scooprussia.org. SCOOP Russia is ready to support 16 applications from new journalists. In addition a number of reporters who have already received SCOOP training, can get support for a new investigation. Our selection period ends February 29th. The training period is tentatively planned for the end of March/beginning of April and will be held in Kalmar, Sweden.

We are ready to welcome your application!
