APPLY || LATEST Louise Behan Reporting Grant for Science Journalists (2022/23)

Deadline: March 31, 2022

Applications for the Louise Behan Reporting Grant 2022 are now being accepted. For those who live in low-income countries who are passionate about the scientific story they are pursuing, a Louise Behan Reporting Grant may be available to assist them in reaching their goal.

Designed to complement the World Federation of Science Journalists’ (WFSJ) long-standing commitment to educate journalists in all parts of the world, this program provides assistance to journalists in the Global South who are covering topics of interest in their own countries or regions.

This scholarship is meant to help each recipient further their professional development while also improving the overall quality of science journalism in their home nation. Founder and former director of Canada’s International Development Research Centre, the late Louise Behan, was passionate about this goal and donated money from her estate to help fund the establishment of this grant program.

Grant

Eligibility

  • To qualify, you must be working in a country the World Bank defines as lower income.
  • Extensive experience in science reporting is not essential, but you will be asked to provide links to any material that you have published or broadcast during the course of your career.
  • Your proposal does not need to be new; it could be an addition to work you have already begun or completed.
  • Your work can be in print, radio, television, or some form of online presentation, but above all, it must meet the basic criteria of science journalism. This means you are operating independently of any non-media organization that could influence your reporting. Your work should also emphasize themes of science, technology, or medicine above other aspects of your narrative, which should be based on information drawn from original interviews you have conducted with people working in the field.
