 National Geographic is offering grants for Journalists. In the most difficult of times, journalism can play several roles in supporting communities around the globe. It can disseminate critical information to keep people safe and informed, it can illuminate stories that bring hope and remind us of our shared human experience, and it can help find and share solutions to wicked problems. They seek writers, photographers, videographers, audio journalists, cartographers, filmmakers, and data visualization experts to apply for this funding. 

Eligibility Criteria:

  • All application materials must be in English
  • and applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time they submit an application.
  • Journalists should seek placement of this work within their local media ecosystems and must attribute their support to the National Geographic Society’s Emergency Fund for Journalists.
  • Beyond reporting on medical and physical health related to COVID-19, we especially encourage reporting that covers social, emotional, economic, and equity issues. 
  • Narratives around the Pandemic necessarily include facts and numbers, but ultimately, must also go deeper—telling the stories of inequities that COVID-19 has brought to light.
  • Reporting may cover any aspect of the virus and its fallout, including but not limited to: 
  1. Social consequences of COVID-19 and measures to contain it, particularly related to equity—such as its impact on immigrant communities, domestic violence, and early childhood education. 
  2. Stories of resilience and solutions that could be applied on a regional or global scale.
  3. Novel forms of data visualization or science communication to help communities better understand how to protect themselves.
  4. Lessons learned from local response(s) to COVID-19 that could be applied to other large-scale challenges, such as climate change or the refugee crisis. 
  5. Best practices of how educators, students, and schools are reacting to this crisis.

Grant Value:

The fund will distribute support ranging from $1,000–8,000 USD.
