Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is pleased to announce its second round of travel grants for journalists interested in attending – and reporting from – conferences and global summits related to biodiversity issues that are taking place in 2023.

This opportunity is intended to enable journalists from around the world to cover biodiversity-related conferences and negotiations for their home audiences.

Eligible conferences may include, but are not limited to:

  • International Congress for Conservation Biology — 23-27 July 2023 — Kigali, Rwanda
  • 3rd Global Soil Biodiversity Conference — 13-15 March 2023 — Dublin, Ireland
  • EcoSummit 2023 — 13-17 June 2023 — Gold Coast, Australia
  • Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation — 2-6 July 2023 — Tamil Nadu, India
  • One Forest Summit — March 2023 — Libreville, Gabon

We expect to award scholarships of up to US$2,500 each. Budget proposals can include economy-class airfare, accommodation, meals, travel insurance, visa costs, mandatory COVID-19 testing and transportation costs for journalists to attend the conference of their choosing.

To qualify, you must be a professional journalist from or representing an established media house and reporting from a low- or middle-income country and have previous experience reporting on environmental issues.

Application deadline: January 6, 2023.

We especially encourage women, Indigenous journalists and early-career journalists to apply.
