The Rainforest Journalism Fund (RJF), launched in September 2018, represents a major investment in international environmental and climate reporting. Through the Pulitzer Center, the Rainforest Journalism Fund plans to support nearly 200 original reporting projects over the five years’ existence of the Fund, along with annual regional conferences designed to raise the level of reporting on global tropical rainforest issues such as deforestation and climate change and produce stories that make an impact. The Rainforest Journalism Fund supports reporting on tropical rainforests in the Amazon Basin, Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia.
The Pulitzer Center will fund international travel costs associated with reporting projects on tropical rainforests, with an emphasis on issues that have gone unreported or under-reported in the mainstream American media. The amount of individual travel grants will depend on the specific project and detailed budget planning.
Grants are open to all journalists, writers, photographers, radio producers or filmmakers, staff journalists as well as freelancers of any nationality.
Actions can take place in the world’s tropical rainforests — particularly in the South American Amazon, Africa, and Asia.
Most awards fall in the range of $5,000 to $15,000 but depending on project specifics may be higher.
Applications can be submitted online. Deadline is rolling.
