MIAMI (AP) - The Florida Center for Investigative Reporting has received a $100,000 grant from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.

The bilingual investigative nonprofit group received the grant last week.

The center's mission is to work in the state's public interest by exposing corruption, waste and miscarriages of justice. The center's office is located at the International Media Center, a nonprofit program at Florida International University dedicated to training journalists in Latin America. The center's reporting will be published online and through media partners.

The Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation - based in Oklahoma City - supports projects designed to improve the quality and ethical standards of journalism.
