The European Journalism Centre today opens the final call for applications for its Global Health Journalism Grant Programmes for Germany and France. Another 18 to 20 grants worth €15,000 on average each will be awarded in these last rounds, looking to advance the coverage of international health, health policy and development issues in German and French media.


These two grant programmes are designed for freelancers and staff journalists with a proven track record in covering development, global health or science. Applicants need to provide a letter of intent for publication from at least one relevant media outlet in Germany or France. There is no citizenship, nationality or residence restriction. Before applying, please read the eligibility criteria for the German call carefully.

Selection criteria include originality, focus & balance of the chosen topic, audience reach and expected impact on the targeted audiences. Award decisions will be taken by the EJC, and editorial independence will be rigorously safeguarded. Applicants will be notified by email on the status of their applications by the end of February.
