Cambodia Media Grant

The Cambodia Media Grant aims to fund eight media stories about crucial issues facing the country and its people. Selected projects can receive up to 1,500 Euros in funding alongside mentorship by our editorial advisory team which will provide professional expertise and advice.

As we embark on a brand new year with the hope of overcoming the immense challenges brought about by Covid-19, one thing is for sure – the pandemic has exacerbated existing issues faced by Cambodians, revealing vulnerable communities at risk and brought attention to the need for people to be informed and to be empowered to create better futures for themselves and their families.

The Cambodia Media Grant seeks to facilitate the creation of stories which will help provide vital information and fresh perspectives to the public, which in turn helps them to better understand the issues thaAttention! Thanks to your feedback, we have updated our eligibility criteria to allow applications from those who are employed full-time. Please see full guidelines for updated details.

The grant is to both individual and group applications. Non-Cambodians can apply only as part of a group application with at least one Cambodian national as a lead partner in the same project.
