Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants and in-kind support to USA, Canada, and International journalists to produce work championing green Coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery activities. Applicants must subscribe to the funding source's organization prior to submitting a grant application. Eligible applicants are investigative reporters working in all areas of media including online, print, television, and radio.

EJN is offering reporting grants to support the production of in-depth or investigative stories that will highlight progress toward a post-pandemic "green recovery". EJN is seeking to increase reporting on this emerging topic in order to improve public understanding of these actions and ensure that governments are held accountable for implementing recovery plans that work towards a sustainable future. This is a critically timed opportunity to shape investment for years to come, and for the public to have a voice in ensuring that their country is rebuilt better than before.

EJN welcomes investigative and/or in-depth stories that engage audiences to better understand the commitments (or lack thereof) from governments, administrations, corporations and other authorities to progress towards a green, sustainable future. EJN is also seeking story pitches that more generally focus on energy and climate change at the national or international level.

It is expected that that stories will be produced with equipment the applicant already has access to (including cameras, drones, lighting, tripods, etc.). Stories can be produced in any language. However, applicants who intend to write or produce stories in their local language need to also include an English translation. Please include the cost for translation in the budget, if necessary. Freelance reporters should demonstrate a plan for publication or broadcast and are encouraged to provide a letter of interest from the editor.

By registering with EJN, applicants will become a part of a growing network that currently includes more than 9,000 members around the world, giving them access to reporters, editors, mentors, and others focused on environmental news and information. Applicants will also be automatically subscribed to EJN newsletters, which provide updates on its activities as well as new opportunities, fellowships, and story grants.

Number of Grants:

Estimated Size of Grant:

- The average grant amount will be 1,100 GBP.
- ENJ may consider larger grant amounts for stories using innovative or investigative approaches that may be more costly and time-consuming.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applications are open to journalists (online, print, television, radio) and other expert media practitioners with experience in investigative reporting and covering environment and/or issues related to climate. Applications from freelancers and staff from all types of media organizations—international, national, local and community-based -- are encouraged.

EJN is seeking to support both early-career and senior journalists with many years of reporting experience. EJN will accept both individual and group applications, but for the latter they ask that the application is made in the name of one lead applicant who will receive the grant on the group's behalf if awarded.

Budgets that heavily focus on producing new supplies will not be considered.
