Earth Journalism Network (EJN) STOP Spillover Story Grants 2022 – EJN is offering story grants to journalists to some countries to report on viral zoonotic diseases and efforts to prevent their spillover from animals to humans.

As part of this project, EJN is offering story grants to journalists to increase public information and journalists’ capacity around this topic. With 1-1 mentoring, journalists will be well-positioned to combat mis- and disinformation and produce high-quality reporting on the threats of zoonotic diseases as well as the solutions to prevent future spillover events.

  • Ebola
  • Marburg

  • Applications are open to journalists working in any medium (online, print, television, radio). Freelance reporters and staff reporters from international, national, local or community-based outlets are eligible. We encourage applications from early-career journalists, but experienced reporters with a track record of reporting on health and environmental issues are also welcome to apply.
