Investing in journalism

The Walkley Foundation invests back in Australian journalism by offering grants to support public interest journalism, fellowships and training. We’re also building a digital archive of six decades of Walkley-winning journalism as a resource for journalists, students, and the public. The Walkley Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on support from corporate organisations, foundations and individuals to develop our wide range of programs.




Digital Archive

Thanks to funding support from Google and in partnership with Deakin University, the Walkley Foundation has embarked on a project to bring together six decades of award-winning stories that can be easily accessed by the touch of a button – an invaluable digital resource for scholars, academics, the public and journalists.
