Society of Environmental Journalists Fund Invites Applications for Rapid Response Grants
The Society of Environmental Journalists Fund for Environmental Journalism invests in public service reporting on the environment and the journalists who produce it.
To that end, SEJ invites proposals for story grants on climate, conservation, and/or environmental health in North America. Rapid Response grants of up to $2,500 for individuals or $5,000 for team or outlet project will be awarded in support of the development and dissemination of significant new, original, and timely journalism projects focused on climate, conservation, and/or environmental health in North America that otherwise could not be completed.
There is a $40 fee to apply, but the fee will be waived for members of SEJ and for members of diversity journalism associations (e.g., National Association of Hispanic Journalists, National Association of Black Journalists, Native American Journalists Association, Asian American Journalists Association, South Asian Journalists Association, Association of LGBTQ Journalists).
Eligible applicants include journalists, professors, or students who are not employed or contracted to do any public relations work on environmental issues. Those whose paid work involves lobbying, media relations, or public relations on environment-related issues are not eligible.
See the Society of Environmental Journalists website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
