About the Grants

Applications are open for the Money Trail Grants 2020. The program seeks journalists to investigate cross-border illicit financial flows, tax abuse and corruption in Africa, Asia and Europe. Grants are awarded to journalists solely by, with no input or oversight at any stage from the consortium as a whole.

Goals of Grants

The primary goal of this grant is to expose illicit finance and tax abuse.

  • Intercontinental journalist teams from Africa, Asia and Europe.
  • Regional cross-border collaborations in Africa and Asia.
  • Exceptional proposals from individual journalists in Africa and Asia whose story includes an offshore element in a national story – where the money trail leads to a tax haven – can be accepted.

  • Foreign correspondents in Africa or Asia can apply with local journalists.

    We do not support fixed costs such as office costs, investments such as cameras or computers or production costs, nor do we support food and beverages.
  • Research time (only for freelance journalists).

The total available amount per application round is around 50,000 euro: this amount is distributed among different projects. The money comes from the Dutch Nationale Postcode Loterij.
