News - More grants for stories on finance, lobbying, privacy or the environment
After our successful 2015 by-subject grant application deadline (on 25th November), we have opened a second application round for by-subject grant applications. Journalists who missed the 2015 deadline or whose application didn't make the cut, have a second chance on 9th March. The deadline closes at 11.59 pm Brussels time.
The special, by-subject cross-border grants are reserved for journalism stories on a specific topic, chosen by our International Advisory Board and ratified by our Board of Directors.
Four eligible topics
The eligible topics are the same as for the 2015 call:
- Surveillance and privacy
- Nature and environment
- Economy and finance (public spending and public debt, corruption)
The topics are not in order of priority; all four topics are equally relevant to the jury.
How to apply
The application procedure for a by-subject grant is the same as for a regular cross-border grant. The only difference with a regular cross-border grant application is that applicants have to tick the box 'By-subject cross-border grant' in the project description tab in the application form.
You will find all the information you need on our application pages. Like for a regular cross-border grant, you will have to create a new applicant (if it is the first time you and your team are applying) before you can start with your actual application. Watch the step-by-step application guide here.
