Grants offered for three journalists to cover local government corruption and abuse of power stories as well as mentoring by experienced editors.

The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania launched a call for investigative stories on local government on November 27th.

The call is part of the project “Strengthening the Local Partnership between Media and Civil Society”, while the grants are supported by Leviz Albania and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

Three journalists will be awarded grants to cover their expenses while conducting investigations and writing their stories on local government.

The journalists will have some three months to dig deeper and research their ideas, and will also have the opportunity to work with experienced editors as mentors to guide them through the process of writing in accordance with BIRN standards.
The call only applies to journalists from Albania and closes on December 18th.
