Coda Story’s Bruno Fellowship 2020

Deadline: 29 March 2020
Open to: early to mid-career journalists worldwide
Benefits: an award of USD 16,000


Coda Story’s inaugural Bruno Fellowship is a nine-month reporting grant that will fund one ambitious investigative project culminating in a single story or series of impactful stories, unearthing information that powerful forces do not want to see the light of day. Journalists at Coda Story exclusively cover three subjects: disinformationauthoritarian tech and the war on science, and applicants must submit work that fits into one or more of those categories.

The Fellowship is an opportunity designed to allow early-career international journalists the time, funding and space to report deeply on the stories that matter.


Journalists of all genders, nationalities, races, and groups that are under-represented in journalism are welcomed and encouraged to apply, but the fellowship is intended for applicants in the early to mid stage of their career, with at least 5 years’ reporting experience that have a strong understanding of written and spoken English as well as a track record of writing reported pieces in English.


The winning investigative project will be awarded with a grant of USD 16,000. The grant will cover compensation and travel expenses for a period of six months’ reporting and two-three months for the story to go through the editing process. During the Fellowship, the journalist will be offered mentorship support from Coda’s editors.

How to Apply?

The application must be submitted online.
