Fund for Environmental Journalism

Reporters may apply for support for reporting projects through SEJ's Fund for Environmental Journalism.

SEJ’s Fund for Environmental Journalism invests in top quality public service reporting on environment-related issues, and the journalists who produce it.  FEJ grants support development and dissemination of significant coverage that otherwise could not be completed. 

See the winners of the Winter 2016 round of competition for FEJ grants to journalists and news organizations.

The Society of Environmental Journalists actively seeks underwriting for Fund for Environmental Journalism grants to journalists and news organizations that may be focused on particular topic areas. FEJ grantees maintain total editorial control of all coverage that is produced and disseminated.  Donors have no right of review and no influence on editorial content that is made possible in part by their contributions.  All proposals and binding agreements between donors and the Society of Environmental Journalists and between SEJ and grantees of the Fund for Environmental Journalism strictly reinforce this policy of editorial independence.

Fund for Environmental Journalism story project grants 2011 – 2016 have been funded by the Cornell Douglas Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, The Energy Foundation, Heinz Endowments, Grantham Foundation, Wyss Foundation, and individual members and friends of the Society of Environmental Journalists. Read how the FEJ got started here. Your gift makes a difference!  Please support future rounds of competition by making a donation today.

Entry details and deadline for the next round will be posted here when available.

Non-members: Fee will be $40 (If you apply and are approved for SEJ membership during the grant application review period, you may apply the fee to first-year membership — also $40. Please note that this is a completely separate application from the grant application.)
