Applications are open for the European Journalism Centre Global Health Journalism Grant 2019. More than 20 grants worth €15,000 on average will be awarded overall, looking to advance the coverage of international health, health policy and development issues in German and French media.
Since the launch of the Global Health Journalism Grant Programmes for Germany (2016) and France (2018), they have disbursed over half a million Euros to 39 journalistic projects that brought under-reported global health stories to the attention of audiences in Germany and France. Stories on antibiotic resistance in India, the mental health crisis in Iraq and lead poisoning of communities living near recycling factories in Nigeria, to name just a few, have had an impact on a wide spectrum of society, ranging from audience engagement to donations to NGOs.
Awards:- The grants are worth between €5,000 and €20,000 each – including potential travel and technical expenses according to the scope of project.
