News media organizations in Europe and North America can apply for grants to fund engagement activities.

The Agora Journalism Center at the University of Oregon, with support from Robert Bosch Stiftung and News Integrity Initiative, has launched the project “Engaging communities: reflecting on the work of engaged journalism."

Eight selected applicants will receive up to EUR10,120 (US$11,330) to carry out their projects and attend two cohort gatherings, one in the United States and one in Europe, as well as a cross-border visit to another project.

Project activities include building community networks, making opportunities for dialogue between diverse community members or equipping the public in aspects of the journalistic process, among others.

Organizations must already have some engagement project in the works with their community. 

The deadline is April 19.
