Grant Description
Grants of $5,000 to USA, Canada, or International women professional journalists to support efforts to report on worldwide subcultures. Funding may be used for reporting-related costs such as logistics, travel, visa fees, insurance, professional stipends, and payments for producers and translators. Grants will help women with Kim Wall's adventurous spirit chase down important, underreported stories.

The IWMF's Kim Wall Memorial Fund will provide grants to journalists whose work embodies the spirit of Kim’s reporting. The grant will fund women or non-binary reporters covering subculture, broadly defined, and what Kim liked to call “the undercurrents of rebellion.” Kim wanted more women to be out in the world, brushing up against life, and the Kim Wall Memorial Fund honors this legacy.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
All applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:
- Affiliated or freelance women or nonbinary journalists with one (1) or more years of professional experience working in news media from anywhere in the world. Internships do not count toward professional experience.
- Applicants must have excellent written and verbal English skills in order to fully participate in and benefit from the program. However, reporting may be published in any language.
- Applicants must be able to show proof of interest from an editor or have a proven track record of publication in prominent media outlets.
