The International Women’s Media Foundation’s (IWMF) Fund for Indigenous Journalists: Reporting on Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Two-Spirit, Transgender People (MMIWG2T) opportunity supports the production of ambitious reporting that opens up underreported aspects of the issue of Missing & Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP). Across three years (2022-2025), the IWMF will distribute grants to support Indigenous journalists in their projects and endeavors. The fund is not limited to an annual number of grants or dollar amount distributed.

The Fund for Indigenous Journalists: Reporting on MMIWG2T will prioritize funding for U.S.-based, in-depth reporting projects that go beyond breaking news and explore the underlying factors of the issue of violence against Indigenous people and the issue of Missing & Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP) with a focus on women, girls, Two-Spirit, and transgender people.

The average grant amount is expected to be up to $5,000. Project proposals over $10,000 will be considered on a limited basis.
