What we do
We are proud to fund innovative and compelling journalism
The programme “Global Health Journalism Grants for Germany” is a
project operated by the European Journalism Centre (EJC). This is the last round of the grant
programme which aims to advance creative reporting
approaches, enabling a better coverage of international health, health
policy and development related issues in German media.
The European Journalism Centre will award around 12 more stipends worth €180,000 to freelance and staff journalists in this last round.
This programme is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The project rewards quality journalism and advances a new and
distinctive agenda for development coverage on health topics through the
award of funding to a selection of state-of-the-art reporting projects
of great impact and high visibility.
From 2016 to date, the EJC has been running this Global Health Journalism Grants Programme for Germany, with 43 projects funded so far. Equally, a Global Health Journalism Grants Programme for France
was launched in spring of 2018, and 23 projects have been awarded in two rounds so far. A new call for applications for France is launched simultaneously.
