Grants available for data stories

Mekong Partnership for the Environment (MPE) has set aside up to three grants for data journalism products, please see attached the application

Priority will go to:

  • Journalistic products for media, not advocacy. If you work for an NGO, you can consider creating a journalism product for your local media and/or The Mekong Eye
  • Stories that focus on development projects with international investment/impacts, such as dams, mines, SEZ, power plants
  • Stories that mix data and field reporting

We can cover $500-3000 in costs like travel in your country or around the Mekong region, translation, graphic design, database access fees etc..

Deadline for applications is August 1, but we will award on an ongoing basis (thus… earlier is better for your chances).

Applications and queries can be sent with subject line “MPE Story Fund-applicant name” to,
