Deadline approaching: COVID-19 emergency fund calls for proposals [Worldwide]

Posted on Apr 7, 2020 in COVID-19 Reporting

Journalists who want to cover COVID-19 within their own communities can apply for this fund.

National Geographic offers the COVID-19 Emergency Fund for Journalists.

The fund ranges from US$1,000 to US8,000 for local coverage of the preparation, response and impact of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Proposals must emphasize delivering news to underserved populations, particularly where there is a dearth of evidence-based information getting to those who need it. Local and even hyper-local distribution models are encouraged.

All materials must be in English.

The deadline is Nov. 15.
