COVID-19 Reporting Grants for MENA Journalists

In partnership with the Facebook Journalism Project, ICFJ will offer a combination of grants, webinars, and professional mentorship to support publishers as they navigate the challenges associated with COVID-19.

These grants are designed to provide financial support to individual journalists and freelancers in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Sudan, and Yemen to assist them in their COVID-19 reporting.

Selected journalists will receive a $2,500 grant to produce stories related to COVID-19 and its effects.

They will also receive a mentor to help them develop their stories for a period of two months.

All grantees must participate in a kick-off call with mentors and ICFJ staff.
