Journalists: Don’t You Want $10,000?

Journalists (especially laid-off ones) are invited to apply for the George Polk Program at Long Island University, which is offering grants of $2,500 to $10,000 to pursue an investigative project for print and/or online media.

We picked up the news last month when the program was first announced. Now, Romenesko has followed up with awards curator John Darnton.

“Friends predicted I’d be swamped by applicants. I’ve received a respectable number – 17, including some good ones – but swamped I’m not. My feet aren’t even wet,” he told Romenesko.

So we ask—we know you’re out there, journalists. Don’t you want ten grand to do some reporting?
