JOURNALISMFUND.EU: EUROPEAN CROSS BORDER GRANTS PROGRAMME

Key Information

  • Eligibility: 
    • Cross-border teams of at least two journalists can submit an investigation proposal. These are projects that have great news value and depth, and at the same time are original, innovative and time-consuming, and would not be realised without financial support.
    • The applicants must be professional journalists (written or audio-visual press). Personal references and/or references to earlier work are essential in that respect. Students are not eligible.
    • Only natural persons can apply for a grant.
    • The project must be published by at least two professional news outlets in at least two different countries. Letters of intent for publication from at least two professional news outlets are required.
    • Investigative journalism published by professional media in any form is eligible, no matter whether print, online, broadcast or cross-media. 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.
    • Journalists who were previously allocated a grant by Journalismfund.eu can reapply. The jury will include the result of previous grants in their evaluation of the new application.
  • Funding amount: €50,000 to €200,000
  • Type of funding: Programmatic
  • Target countries: Europe or outside Europe with relevant story
  • Application language: English

For the European Cross-Border grants, Journalismfund.eu receives support from the Open Society Foundations (OSF), Addesium foundation, Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), Fritt Ord and the King Baudouin foundation. OSF and Addessium foundation have structurally supported the programme since 2009.

Projects can include cross-border research, networking between colleagues, and established and innovative investigative methods.
