Posted on Nov 27, 2023 in Environmental Reporting

Journalists from selected countries in the Asia Pacific can apply for story grants.

With support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), Internews' Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering reporting grants to support the production of stories that raise awareness of the interlinkages between human, animal and ecosystem health.

Approximately 12 story grants with an average budget of $2,000 each will be offered to selected journalists. Selected grantees will be paired with an editorial mentor and receive guidance from a One Health thematic expert.  

Interested journalists are encouraged to submit story ideas that unpacks the science behind One Health issues in a compelling way for their audiences; solutions stories that examine One Health-informed efforts to safeguard human health and environmental resilience; and in-depth reporting that digs into the challenges in implementing these approaches at a local, national and regional level. 

Applications from journalists from low- and middle-income countries in the region will be prioritized. 

Apply by Dec. 7.
