Journalists and media outlets that target audiences in Europe can apply for a grant.

This round's topic is opportunities for women, their lifelong learning, health, jobs, entrepreneurship or new roles in their communities.
Applicants from around the world are eligible, but their final stories must be published in media outlets with significant reach to audiences in the following European countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and United Kingdom.
Projects will receive up to EUR20,000.
