The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering story grants to journalists to report on viral zoonotic diseases and efforts to prevent their spillover from animals to humans.

EJN will support successful journalists to produce high-quality reporting on the threats of zoonotic diseases as well as the solutions to prevent future spillover events with an average budget of $1,200 per journalist.

EJN was developed by Internews in 2004 to enable journalists from developing countries to cover the environment more effectively.
