Grants for Journalism Projects Set up on Both Sides of the Mediterranean

The French media development agency CFI is offering grants for journalism students and professors, to help them set up projects with a partner school on the other side of the Mediterranean, and create lasting relations in a spirit of mutual sharing. For the second year, Medialab Campus gives journalism schools on both sides of the Mediterranean the opportunity to get to know each other and work together for professional and human exchanges. Projects supported by Medialab Campus should allow exchanges, partnerships, and mobility between students and/or teachers of journalism schools. 

Project Criteria:

  1. Projects initiated by journalism schools on both sides of the Mediterranean for students and / or professors from the following countries: Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and the countries of the European Union.
  2. Projects focusing on unifying themes will be valued. For example: the environment, democracy, youth, gender equality, local information, etc.
  3. Each project must be proposed by at least one southern partner and one European partner.
  4. Each proposal must be carried by a legally registered structure (school or association) able to draw up an invoice and sign a performance contract, and to receive foreign funds.
  5. These projects should help to create links between students, create pedagogical exchanges between teachers and facilitate the organization and monitoring of production activities in the field.
  6. CFI is committed to promoting gender equality, so projects run by women's teams will be studied with special attention. And every project should at least be carried by 50% of women. And selected projects should, whatever the themes and formats, promote women's rights and gender equality.
  7. Projects including an awareness of the gender approach will be favored (example: training, the intervention of a female expert, etc.). CFI will encourage project bearers to fight stereotypes spread in the contents produced during the project.

Examples of Projects:

  1. Examples of admissible projects (non-exhaustive list): Joint investigations, masterclass, exchange of practices between teachers, specialized courses for students from several schools in a single location, educational cooperation, support for the publication of online educational content.
  2. Examples of non-eligible projects (non-exhaustive list): Costs of organizing a symposium or a conference, media visit without training, internship or joint production; project for the sole benefit of one journalism school, opening a branch or school in another country by an institution.

Two UNESCO documents are associated with this call for projects. It is highly recommended to read them (found online right here and right here).


At the end of this call, 6 innovative projects will be selected for the year 2020, each one gets:

  1. Support of € 10,000 to € 15,000 for a project taking place in 2020;
  2. A support system for carriers of the selected projects;
  3. Networking with other journalism schools on both sides of the Mediterranean.
  4. CFI will provide support, especially for visa applications. The logistical organization (buying plane tickets, making hotel reservations, etc.) is the schools’ responsibility and a key point in the student's and supervisors’ capacity of setting up projects.

Required Documents:

The file must, imperatively, contain:

  1. The online form (all fields must be filled in).
  2. The budget for the action in euros.
  3. In terms of expenditures, the payment of salaries of permanent school staff will not be accepted.
