A new, five-year program run by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) aims to deter corruption and support transparency in Mexico by bolstering journalists’ investigative skills.
Through the Mexico Border Investigative Reporting Hub, journalists in Mexico’s border states will hone their skills identifying and covering corruption-related issues. Better reporting of these issues will help strengthen public oversight of government spending and increase accountability in government use of public funds.
During this program, ICFJ will work with the Border Center for Journalists and Bloggers (BCJB) and other partners to:
- Host online courses, workshops and Investigathons to train journalists on data and investigative journalism;
- Provide financial support to independent journalists through reporting grants, fellowships, journalism awards with cash prizes and project seed funding;
- Host online dialogues with Iniciativa Sinaloa to discuss pressing policy issues;
- Train journalists on business sustainability and provide access to the SembraMedia Online School for journalism entrepreneurship.
Opportunities will be posted on this page as they become available. Check back soon.
