Twice yearly, winners of the award will receive funding (between $2,000 and $10,000) to cover the reporting costs of an ambitious investigative reporting project, along with editorial guidance from Investigative Fund staff; access to such subscription services as Nexis and Accurint; and assistance with placement of the investigation in a print, online, or broadcast outlet.
