Journalism Grants


Journalism Grants

At a time when many media organisations face financial constraints, the European Journalism Centre’ s grant programmes aim to encourage journalists, newsrooms and media houses to go beyond their usual reporting approaches and thus set a new and distinctive agenda for development and global health coverage.

The Innovation in Development Reporting Grant Programme (IDR)

The grant programme aims to advance creative reporting approaches, thus enabling a better coverage of international development issues. The grant intends to raise awareness about these issues by enabling the production of stories that have a strong impact on media audiences in the following European countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Innovative reporting projects are awarded considerable funding, with an aim to support journalists, editors, and development stakeholders to perform thorough research and to develop new, exciting, and even experimental reporting, employing state of the art presentation methods and techniques of journalistic storytelling.

Global Health Journalism Grants

The grants programme aims to advance creative reporting approaches, enabling a better coverage of international health, health policy and development related issues in German and French media.

The project rewards quality journalism and advances a new and distinctive agenda for development coverage on health topics through the award of funding to a selection of state-of-the-art reporting projects of great impact and high visibility.

European Development Journalism Grants

The European Development Journalism Grants programme supports media organisations reporting on global development challenges. Reporting regularly on development topics during one year provides the opportunity to create awareness and engage audiences.

The purpose of the grant programme is to boost sustainable and impactful journalistic coverage of the topic and to enhance the capacity and motivation of media organisations to address global development topics on a regular basis.

Global Health Security Fund

In-depth media coverage of issues such as pandemic preparedness, vaccine development, and equitable access is essential to keeping the topic of global health security on the public agenda and encouraging European governments to prioritise their funding commitments.

The Global Health Security Call is a project that delivers grant funding and facilitates research opportunities to support in-depth journalistic analysis on the topic of global health security.

These projects are supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation."
