The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) is offering another funding opportunity to Ghanaian journalists who wish to produce critical/investigative stories.

The funding support is available for critical/investigative stories that focus on Health, Education, Corruption and the Extractives sectors of the economy. It is open to all Ghanaian journalists (both print and electronic) currently working with recognised Ghanaian media organisations.

The initiative is to encourage journalists to produce critical/investigative stories that prompt policy debates and/or action on education, health, extractives and Corruption – which they could otherwise not do as a result of financial constraints.

This support, the third in the year, is under the MFWA’s “Promoting Professional Standards and Enhancing the Watchdog Role of the Ghanaian Media” project which is funded by STAR-Ghana.

So far, eight (8) Ghanaian journalists have been supported under the project to the tune of GHC10,000.

The application form for the third call for funding support can be accessed here. The deadline for applications is 30th August, 2014 at 5:00pm.

The provision of financial and technical support to journalists by the MFWA is part of the organisation’s commitment and contribution to media development for democracy in Ghana and the West Africa region.
