The Earth Journalism Network is inviting freelance journalists and writers at small media organizations to apply for funding to write stories about environmental issues in the Congo Basin. InfoCongo shares stories about forests, water, climate change, wildlife, extractive industries, and conflicts in the region.

The Feature Stories Grant will allow journalists working in Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and DR Congo to explore issues such as wildlife exploitation, forest conservation, the environmental impact of development and infrastructure projects, and positive development projects.

The grant will cover expenses such as travel, fact-checking, and translations. Applicants are asked to submit a budget outlining the funding they need for their stories.

The deadline to apply is June 30.
