Funding to help combat misinformation around COVID-19 [Southeast Asia]

Posted on Apr 20, 2020 in COVID-19 Reporting

Journalists, media outlets, community-based groups, nongovernment research organizations and social media practitioners are eligible to apply for this fund.

The Institute for War & Peace Reporting, through its Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Department of State,  has launched a fund to help combat misinformation around COVID-19 in Southeast Asia.

Proposals must be quick to design, test and launch; deliver results that are specific, measurable and impactful across mass audiences; and be implemented virtually given the ongoing lockdown/social distancing measures to help contain COVID-19.

Grants range between US$2,000 to US$10,000.

The deadline is April 30.
