The George Polk Program at Long Island University wants to help experienced journalists finish — or get started on — that investigative project that is crying out to be done. Grants are expected to range from $2,500 to $10,000. They will offer up an editor and help placing the story — on the Web, in print or on the air.
This program is aimed at reporters with a proven track record of investigative work, especially those who have been laid off, furloughed or taken retirement. We are looking for applicants who have long dreamt of following up a specific story and need a little assistance to run it down.
