Kim Wall Memorial Fund Grant
 

Grant title: Kim Wall Memorial Fund Grant

Deadline: 4th January 2019

“The undercurrents of rebellion.” That’s how Swedish journalist Kim Wall described her unique approach to reporting on subcultures, broadly defined, around the globe. The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), in partnership with Kim’s family and friends, seek to make sure the kinds of stories Kim loved continue to be told, through the creation of the Kim Wall Memorial Fund. Whether reporting about Cuba’s underground market for digital content and culture, how the politics of opportunity played out inside Kampala’s emerging Chinatown, or the extent to which female Tamil Tiger combatants in Sri Lanka were failed by the promises of a feminist utopia, Kim introduced us to incredibly interesting people others overlooked. The Memorial Fund will help other women with Kim’s adventurous spirit chase down these important, underreported stories.

Kim reported from all over the world in her short but accomplished career as an international correspondent. Her reporting appeared in publications including Harper’s, The New York Times, Foreign Policy, The Atlantic, TIME, Slate, Vice and Guardian. Kim was an IWMF fellow and grantee, and received support from the organization in 2016 to report from Uganda and Sri Lanka.

Eligibility 

  • Women journalists from anywhere in the world are eligible to apply.
  • Professional Journalism must be the applicant’s primary profession.
  • Applicants must have three or more years of professional journalism experience.
  • All answers and documents must be in English. Due to the high  volume of applications we cannot answer questions by phone. Please  review the application guide and frequently asked questions on our  website prior to beginning this application.

Beginning this year, one $5,000 reporting grant will be awarded annually to a female journalist whose reporting carries forward Kim’s legacy.

“Kim Wall was a dedicated journalist, and loved by our network of staff and journalists who worked closely with her,” said the IWMF’s executive director Elisa Lees Muñoz. “She was dogged in her pursuit of important and sometimes quirky stories. She was adored by those who knew her.”

This fund was developed in the spirit that Kim would have wanted more women to be out in the world, brushing up against life. Through this grant, the IWMF seeks to help bend the world toward Kim’s vision.
