APPLICATION PERIOD: Proposals will be accepted APRIL 15, 2016 through JUNE 15, 2016, midnight local time.
WHO MAY APPLY FOR A GRANT?
Journalists working independently or on the staff of news organizations (for-profit or non-profit) are eligible for grants from the Fund for Environmental Journalism.
SEJ membership is not required, but all applicants must meet SEJ’s membership eligibility requirements.
If your work involves lobbying, media relations or public relations on environment-related issues you will not be eligible for membership in SEJ. Please review requirements if you are not sure.
Applicants for FEJ story grants are limited to receipt of one grant per two-year period and two grants per five-year period. Prospective applicants who have served on the Society of Environmental Journalists board of directors, staff or FEJ grantee selection jury must observe a one-year blackout period before applying.
WILL PROPOSALS ON OTHER TOPICS BE CONSIDERED THIS ROUND?
No. For the June 15, 2016 deadline, grants from the Fund for Environmental Journalism will be available only for journalism projects covering “the politics and economics of renewable energy in the U. S.”
If your project is focused on a different topic, do not apply this time.
Story project grants from the Fund for Environmental Journalism of the Society of Environmental Journalists can be provided only when opportunities are funded in advance through foundation grants and individual donations. SEJ will announce new categories and new deadlines when new underwriting can be secured.
