Media outlets, journalists and freelancers are eligible for grants to collaborate on investigative reporting.
The Environmental Reporting Collective (ERC) is accepting applications for its Collaborative Investigation Grants. Aimed at promoting collaboration, the grants allow journalists from different countries to work together to fill in gaps in each other’s reporting, especially when tracing environmental crimes across borders.
Applicants must submit proposals that are investigative and have an environmental focus. Applications must include at least two journalists or media outlets from two different countries or regions.
Successful applicants will receive US$1,000 to US$3,000 grants.
Funds can be used creatively and there is no travel requirement.
The next deadline is June 30.
