In order to be eligible for application, the journalists have to ensure that their story will be published. Therefore, during the application procedure, they must upload commitment of publication from relevant media organisations.
The applications are assessed by a separate, independent, anonymous jury of four people with ample experience in investigative journalism in Africa, Asia and Europe. The jury members are chosen by Journalismfund.eu and suggested by the Money Trail consortium and the advisory board of Journalismfund.eu. Their names will be made public after all grants have been awarded.
After the application deadline, Journalismfund.eu checks that formalities are in order and may call for more information from applicants. This usually takes one week.
After this, the applications go to the jury who makes the final decision.
Applicants are usually informed around 30 days after the deadline.
Both Journalismfund.eu and the jury are bound to strict confidentiality—before, during and after evaluation of the proposals.
