Grants offered for three journalists to cover organized crime stories as well as mentoring by experienced editors.

The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania launched a call for investigative stories on organized crime themes on February 29.

The call is part of the program “Exposing Corruption in Albania,” supported by the Open Society Foundation in Albania, the Balkan Trust for Democracy and the National Endowment for Democracy.

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

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 March 15
