Internews EJN Biodiversity Media Grants 2024

The Biodiversity Media Grants 2024 from Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) are offering 3-4 grants of approximately 10,000-12,000 EUR each to organizations, aiming to support activities that enhance media reporting on biodiversity issues.

The Biodiversity Media Grants will support projects that:   

  • Produce in-depth stories to expand the breadth and depth of coverage of  biodiversity and conservation issues;

  • Carry out biodiversity and/or conservation training activities for journalists and/or media organizations to build their capacity to report on biodiversity and conservation issues more effectively.

  • Create or strengthen journalist networks focused on these issues, enabling them to invest in strategic opportunities, build the capacities of their members and respond to communities’ needs.


  • They anticipate supporting 3-4 organizations with grants of 10,000-12,000 EUR each. In general, proposals with smaller budgets will be more competitive. Larger grant amounts will be considered for projects that use innovative approaches and may be more resource- and time-consuming.
