Project Grants for Environmental Journalism

Society of Environmental Journalists Accepting Applications for Project Grants

The Society of Environmental Journalists is the only North American membership association of professional journalists dedicated to more and better coverage of environment-related issues. SEJ’s mission is to strengthen the quality, reach, and viability of journalism across all media to advance public understanding of environmental issues.

SEJ’s Fund for Environmental Journalism invests in public-service reporting on environment and the journalists who produce it. Through the funds, grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to support the development and dissemination of significant coverage that otherwise could not be completed. Funds may be used to underwrite stipends for freelancers and budget lines for direct expenses such as travel, multimedia production, translation, data sets, or document costs.

In 2019, grants will support journalism projects focused on drinking water or stormwater issues in the United States.

See the SEJ website for complete program guidelines, information about previous grant recipients, and application instructions.

Deadline: November 15, 2018
