Grants available for civic science journalism collaborations [US]

Posted on Feb 16, 2023 in Collaborative Journalism

Science journalists in the United States can apply for grants.

The Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University, in partnership with the Rita Allen Foundation, is offering grants to fund civic science journalism collaborations. The project aims to accelerate civic science journalism cross-field collaborations in the U.S. by providing small grants and coaching.

The grants will fund short-term pilots.

Priority will be given to projects that emphasize meaningful collaborations between civic science and journalism organizations to achieve shared purpose; involve community engagement with the intended audiences; and have the potential to be a catalyst for future collaborations.

Ten grants up to US$15,000 will be awarded.

The deadline is March 17.
