Since the launch of the Global Health Journalism Grant Programmes for Germany (2016) and France (2018), we have funded 65 journalistic projects with around 800,000 euros that brought under-reported global health stories to the attention of audiences in Germany and France.
These two grant programmes are designed for freelancers and staff journalists with a proven track record in covering development, global health or science. Applicants need to provide a letter of intent for publication from at least one relevant media outlet in Germany or France. There is no citizenship, nationality or residence restriction. Before applying, please read the eligibility criteria for the German call or the French call carefully.
The deadline for the submission of proposals is 5 February 2020 (22:00 CET).
Selection criteria include originality, focus & balance of the chosen topic, audience reach and expected impact on the targeted audiences. Award decisions will be taken by the EJC, and editorial independence will be rigorously safeguarded. Applicants will be notified by email on the status of their applications by the end of February.
