What we do

We are proud to fund innovative and compelling journalism

The European Development Journalism Grants support high-profile journalistic media organisations - or coalitions of those - that serve audiences in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, or the UK with amounts up to €120,000 per grant.

The programme looks for year-long reporting projects about global development topics. These can be implemented online, in broadcasting, or print (or a mix thereof), and must be published in regular instalments. This grant programme is designed to boost sustainable and impactful journalistic coverage of global development in order to increase public awareness and salience of the topic in the long run.

The programme also strives to enhance the capacity and motivation of newsrooms to address global development on a regular basis.

This grant programme is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
