Apply for a $1,000 Storytelling/Journalism Grant

DAWNS is partnering with Global Citizen to provide two (2) $1,000 grants to support journalists, bloggers, photographers, artists and film makers tell humanitarian stories. Our ideal grantees have excellent story ideas or projects underway, but need a small modicum of financial support to help them in some tangible way. (Here is a list of previous grantees.) If you need a new camera lens; some help to pay for a translator; some financial assistance to pay for travel related to your project, then you should apply. Your project should already be off the ground, or close to it. You need to demonstrate to us how $1000 can be put to productive use.

Apply using the form below or go here to learn more details about the grant. Please share with people that you think may be interested. We want to support reporting and storytelling that often does not make it into mainstream news channels.
