About our journalism

Type Investigations is a home for ambitious independent investigative journalism. We tell deeply reported stories in partnership with print, broadcast, and digital media outlets — allowing us to bring our work to a wide range of audiences.

Our team provides journalists with expert editorial guidance; rigorous fact-checking; research assistance; and funds to cover their travel, time, and other reporting costs. We are committed to reporting from the ground up, elevating stories from the communities most affected by wrongdoing. Our work enables groundbreaking journalism that would otherwise be impossible.

Type Investigations is building a more inclusive journalism sector. We are home to the noted Ida B. Wells Fellowship for journalists from underrepresented communities. Our goal is to transform the field of independent investigative journalism, creating meaningful pathways for reporters and editors from all backgrounds to build careers in journalism and produce high-impact work.
