News - Questions about your March application? Ask our advice on Skype!
Our Editor Europe Brigitte Alfter has blocked three half-days in her agenda in the course of February for Skype consultations. This is a perfect opportunity for interested journalists to pitch their story idea and discuss it with Brigitte, who can see whether it is eligible for a grant and is able to offer tips and advice as well as suggest possible colleagues or publication platforms.
- Tuesday 2nd Feburary, from 1 pm to 4 pm
- Monday 8th February, from 1 pm to 4 pm
- Tuesday 16th February, from 1 pm to 4 pm
To arrange a half-hour time slot for a session, send us an e-mail at info[at]journalismfund.eu with a preferred date and time. Please note that all times are Brussels time.
We have two deadlines in March: the first, on Monday the 7th is for our regular European cross-border grants. The second, on Wednesday the 9th, is for the special, by-subject grants, for which only applications dealing with certain specific topics are eligible.
We receive dozens of well-prepared, interesting applications each application round, so your application will only stand a chance to be allocated a working grant if it is very well prepared (and meets the eligibility criteria). This means you should start preparing your application now.
Do consider a talk with Brigitte, especially if you are unfamiliar or inexperienced with the Journalismfund.eu working grant programme.
