The Robert McCormick Foundation provides funding to journalism and nonprofit organizations to host specialized reporting institutes (SRIs), providing journalism training in specialized subjects. The foundation backs six to eight SRI hosts annually; grant amounts range between $30,000-$50,000 for hosts to plan and convene two-day events with administrative assistance from The Poynter Institute. Grant funds cover travel, lodging and tuition for participants. The application deadline for host organizations is Nov. 16, with finalists announced Dec. 3. More information can be found on the SRI application page.
