The Global Health Journalism Grant Programme is a quality journalism funding project operated by the European Journalism Centre. The grant programme aims to advance innovative reporting on global health topics in developing countries. Your story pitch is the most important part of the application. Projects submitted are required to deal with global health and provide a link to Germany in their stories. The reporting should be connected to Germany’s global health policies or the activities of either health-related German government organisations or NGOs on the ground.
Ideally, your story should be designed to have an impact – on the media audiences and the society in Germany, its political decision makers and/or on those in the countries you report about. The reported issues are intended to enhance a better understanding about the interrelation of public health and the political, social and economic stability in developing countries.
Awards:- Freelance journalists may apply for a grant of maximum €10,000. The sum of €10,000 should cover the freelancer’s fees and the costs for the production of the project, including translation, equipment rental, insurance, multimedia production, etc.
