BRUSSELS - Do you have an idea for a European story? Do you have an idea for a story that goes across borders? Then maybe Journalismfund.eu can help you with a research grant.

Journalismfund.eu supports journalistic research of stories with relevance for a European audience.

Journalismfund.eu wants to further cross-border reporting, where journalists cooperate across borders. This allows them to pool knowledge and time for research. Due to the different languages and media traditions they are not direct competitors, on the contrary. By addressing each their target group they publish the common story to a much wider target group and can obtain stronger impact.

Good journalism needs good ideas, competent and committed journalists, supportive editors - and time and money. The latter is something the European Fund for Investigative Journalism can help with.

In this round we can distribute € 20.000. The application must be uploaded on the website by September 24th at 9 am.

Please read carefully the rules for applications here. The assessment criteria that the jury applies for the selection will be of interest to you as well before considering whether to apply or not. 

Applications can only be submitted via the online application form.

The selection among applicants will be made according to the assessment criteria by a jury of experienced colleagues in the field. The members of the jury are anonymous as long as they are active jury members and their names will only be revealed at the moment they leave the jury. This model has been chosen following the example of the Pascal Decroos Fund and academic peer reviewing in order to strengthen the credibility of the jury’s work. 

The money for this round of applications comes from a grant by the Open Society Foundations. There are no editorial strings attached to the support.
