Early Grant Information for NGOs

Media travel grants are awarded on a competitive basis to journalists who have a clean plan of the stories they want to cover.

The Foundation will still be funding projects in Asia, with proposals having to take into account issues with visas, border closures, and travel bans due to COVID-19 restrictions in some Asian nations.

The Foundation is not currently funding projects that involve international travel to countries that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has advised against travelling to.

The Foundation will consider proposals that seek to increase New Zealanders’ understanding of the Asia region, and proposals that promote themes of economic, political, social or strategic change in Asia – and the implications of these changes for New Zealand.
Proposals that are unlikely to succeed

Proposals that are unlikely to succeed include:

Proposals in which journalism is not the core reason for travel. The Foundation is unlikely to approve grant applications from people who are travelling to Asia for another reason (e.g. family holidays, competing in a sports event) and plan to write stories for publication on the side.
Applications with a purely travel focus (e.g. a cycling tour of Japan) are unlikely to be successful.
Single-story proposals are unlikely to succeed, as are single-person interviews that could be conducted by telephone.
Applications from journalists based offshore are less likely to succeed. New Zealand-based journalists will have preference.
