The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute invites proposals from people and institutions to collaborate with us on innovative ideas and projects to improve the practice or understanding of journalism. We’re giving special consideration this year to ideas and projects focused on solving problems created by filter bubbles, fake news and mistrust of the news media; however, we also invite submission of other ideas and projects that could strengthen democracy through better journalism.
Successful collaborations are often in one of three categories but are not limited to the following:
- Transformation of an idea into a market-tested prototype.
- Development and deployment of a prototyped product or service into a substantial market test to prepare it for angel or venture investment or a full product launch.
- Scholarly research that leads to publication of new understandings about the practice of journalism.
