Biodiversity Media Grant Opportunity – 2017 call for applications

The 2017 round of EJN’s Biodiversity Media Grant Opportunity is now open for applicants.

please avoid any applications rooted in advocacy or political campaigning. Although we will consider applications by NGOs or environmental groups looking to build the capacity of journalists to cover conservation issues, preference will be given to applications from or affiliated with professional journalists, media organizations, journalism schools and the like.

This grant fund contains US$30,000, which we would ideally share among three projects. The average grant size would therefore be US$10,000, with potentially a greater share of the total going to projects that demonstrate a critical need.

The deadline for applications is December 23rd, 2016.

Grantees are expected to give their full cooperation in monitoring and evaluating the results of the projects, and are encouraged to submit their own monitoring and evaluation plan along with their application. The final monitoring and evaluation plan will be agreed upon Internews’ Earth Journalism Network by and each individual grantee.
