Only applicants who are legally residing in eligible countries are permitted to receive funding. See FAQ for more information.
  • Journalists that reside from countries that are members of the European Union and non-EU participating countries, which include Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Georgia, Ukraine, and Tunisia, are eligible to apply. However, we also welcome countries from outside the European Union as long as any proposal has a clear European dimension to it.

What?
