Journalismfund.eu is now accepting applications for the Science Journalism (Pilot) Grant Program to stimulate in-depth science journalism in Dutch-language media in Belgium. The programme offers grants to science journalists to work on projects that have great newsworthiness and depth but that cannot be realized in regular media. The projects should be original, innovative and time-consuming and must involve investigative reporting on science and its impact on society. All journalistic end products qualify for a grant: newspaper and magazine articles, radio and television documentaries and series, photo-reportages and books, podcasts and journalistic non-fiction books. The project must be published in a Dutch-language medium in Belgium. A letter of intent for publication from at least one professional news outlet is required for journalists with more than 2 years of experience.
