The European Journalism Centre opens the final call for applications for its Global Health Journalism Grant Programmes for Germany and France. Another 18 to 20 grants worth €15,000 on average each will be awarded in these last rounds, looking to advance the coverage of international health, health policy and development issues in German and French media.

About the programmes

Since the launch of the Global Health Journalism Grant Programmes for Germany (2016) and France (2018), the EJC has 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.
