Call for applications: Training in fact-checking and integrity tools with reporting grants


To mark the first anniversary of the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) in Sri Lanka, we are calling for applications from interested, early to mid-career journalists for a training workshop on fact-checking and integrity tools coupled with reporting opportunities under a grants scheme.

Selected participants will be trained by DataLEADS, a data-driven Indian initiative aimed to create new platforms of data research and storytelling, at a tailor-made residential training workshop on February 29 & March 1, 2020.

Subsequent to the training, CIR will mentor the participants to undertake specialized reporting, using the skills on fact-checking tools. Participants are required to produce at least two reports as part of the program. A grant of up to Rs. 20,000 will be available for research and development of each such report.

Application deadline: Closed
