The Eyebeam Center for the Future of Journalism (ECFJ) is an experimental grant-making program that supports artists and artist-journalist teams producing innovative and revelatory journalistic work for major media outlets. In an effort to be responsive to an ever-fluctuating news cycle, artists and artist-journalist teams can apply to ECFJ for support of their work on a rolling basis. ECFJ supports a variety of work, including: text, photography, audio and video. Artists and artist-journalist teams with longer-term, research-intensive projects are also encouraged to apply.
Submissions should focus on the following issues:
- Data privacy

Grant support ranges from $500 to $5,000 per project.
