Submissions for the $3,000 grants are open until June 21

Journalists for Human Rights is accepting reporting proposals for a new bursary program to fund original coverage of online misinformation.

The $3,000 grants are part of JHR’s Misinformation Project, which aims to help journalists and students identify, combat and report on misinformation. 

Reporting proposals may include, but are not limited to topics of misinformation and disinformation on social media; health or science misinformation; the impact of misinformation on the well-being of diverse communities; and how advocacy groups and researchers are combating misinformation. 

News organizations of any size, freelancers and journalism students studying in Canada who have completed JHR’s training are encouraged to apply.

The Misinformation Project was launched in partnership with First Draft News, a global leader in misinformation research and training. 

Applications are due June 21 at 11:59 p.m. ET. For more information about the program, visit JHR’s website
