Free Press Unlimited is launching an opportunity for Jordanian media outlets to apply for core support through the media resilience grant, as part of their project “Media Action Jordan – MAJOR” supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

The media resilience grants are available to Jordanian media with a primary focus – in their content and staff (including journalists and freelancers) – on reaching and informing audiences within Jordan.

These grants are intended to support new, upcoming and existing media to become more resilient for the future. Therefore, preference is given in the selection to applicants who present a clear challenge or development need, or for whom core funding will be used to improve organisational and professional capacity, advance innovative ideas, and efforts towards the sustainability of the outlet or initiative.

The grant is not intended for journalist trainings, fellowships or similar activities, but should focus on the resilience of the media outlet, initiative or start-up applying for core funding.

  • The overall objective of the media resilience grant is to provide core funding in order to advance or scale up promising media outlets or innovations seeking to build their organisational capacity and financial sustainability. Producing independent, relevant and inclusive content, these media outlets or initiatives should reach diverse and under-served audiences (such as, but not limited to teenagers and young adults, women and girls, marginalised communities and regions, people with a disability).
  • The grant selection will pay specific attention to inclusive media and embrace new entrants to the sector, with emphasis on supporting innovative outlets and ideas that lead by example.

The overall strategy of the project aims to:

  • Promote an enabling environment where journalists can work safely.
  • Serve the interests of diverse audiences, with media producing inclusive and relevant content.
  • Enhance the resilience of media through organisational and professional capacity building.
Funding Information
  • Proposed budgets should be a maximum of EUR 50,000 and are subject to assessment during the selection process.
  • The maximum duration of the grant is 12 months. Start- and end-dates of the grant can be discussed based on the needs of the applicant.
