Deadline: 1 May 2017
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a grant-giving non-profit organization that supports independent global journalism, is currently seeking proposals for its Data Journalism and Property Rights Grants.
The anticipated proposals must use open data to reveal new perspectives on property rights issues related to land tenure, indigenous land rights, transparency in land transactions and concessions, resource rights, or overlapping land use rights—just to name a few.
The Center seeks data-driven stories that utilize the tools of the trade—satellite imagery, 360° cameras, drones, sensors, data visualizations, and interactive maps/graphics.
Three grants for a total of $75,000 will be awarded.
- Applicants are encouraged to experiment with open data from a variety of sectors, for example: health data, investment data, law enforcement data, data from offshore and illicit financial flows, agribusiness data, development aid data, or population data to reveal new stories and under-reported issues related to land tenure and property rights.
- Proposals that seek to vet or verify datasets related to property rights generated by NGO’s, governments, or multilateral development banks are welcomed.
- After publication, when possible, the datasets created during this grant period will be released for the public good.
