The Forum for African Investigative Reporters (FAIR) invites all African investigative journalists to submit applications for FAIR's two 2008 grants. Journalists who wish to follow up on a particular investigative story but do not have the funds are urged to apply.

The grants, of 4,000 Euros (US$5,900) each, are funded by the Netherlands Institute for Southern Africa (NiZA) and are awarded to applicants whose proposed investigation is newsworthy and relevant to a wide African audience, and will use investigative methodologies.

John Grobler, who wrote about the depletion of Namibian seas, and Gerard Guedegbe, who exposed ritual infanticide in Benin, were last year's winners.

To apply for a grant, email and fax your idea along with a detailed budget of your expected expenses and a letter from an editor in your country who will publish or broadcast your story to: facilitator(@)fairreporters(.)org and +27 (0)11 717 4694.

The deadline for applications is 1 March 2008.

For detailed application rules and guidelines, visit the small grant section on the FAIR website:
