Money Trail offers Working Grants for African, Asian and European Journalists

Deadline: 25 June 2019

In Money Trail, Journalismfund.eu offers working grants for African, Asian and European journalists to investigate cross-border illicit financial flows, tax abuse and corruption in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Grants are awarded to journalists solely by Journalismfund.eu, with no input or oversight at any stage from the consortium as a whole.

Money Trail exists because countries throughout the world lose billions of dollars through tax abuse, money laundering and grand corruption. Investigative journalism is key to combatting this situation. Such work clearly can have a tremendous impact.

Brilliant reporting by journalists and some notable civil society organisations has resulted in revenue authorities and enforcement agencies recovering desperately needed funds. Politicians have been forced to act.

Funding Information

  • The total amount per call is around 50.000 euro.
  • The money comes from the Dutch Nationale Postcode Loterij.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Preferably, intercontinental journalist teams consisting of at least one African, one Asian and/or one European journalist. Each team preferably consist of journalists from two continents. Ideally, the teams must provide letters of intent for publication from media organisations in two continents.
  • They also accept regional cross-border collaborations in Africa and Asia. Each team must consist of journalists from at least two countries.
  • Exceptional proposals from individual journalists in Africa and Asia whose story includes an offshore element in a national story – where the money trail leads to a tax haven – can be accepted.
  • European journalists planning on applying must collaborate with an African or Asian journalist.
  • Foreign correspondents in Africa or Asia can apply with local journalists.
