Humber and the Pulitzer Centre Create Data Journalism Grant

Humber and the Pulitzer Centre Create Data Journalism Grant

Thu, September 19, 2019

Humber's storyLAB and The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting have created the storyLAB Data Journalism Grant to support independent journalism.

It is the most extensive grant dedicated to Canadian data-driven journalism.

The grant supports projects related to essential and underserved topics affecting Canadians. For the inaugural grant, Humber and Pulitzer are accepting proposals for stories related to Indigenous lands and property rights. The grant will provide up to $10,000 for a freelance journalist or team of journalists to explore a related story from a data-driven perspective.

"Opportunities for enterprise, data-driven journalism in this country are few and far between," says David Weisz, director of storyLAB at Humber College and professor in the Faculty of Media and Creative Arts. "Especially when it comes to covering Indigenous issues, where the cost of travel alone can cause newsrooms to lose their appetite for a particular story. This grant is to ensure that these important stories get told and told properly."

This grant opportunity is now open, and applicants are encouraged to submit their proposals by October 31, 2019. The winner(s) of the grant will be honoured at a cocktail reception on November 15, 2019.

Humber’s storyLAB leverages the multidisciplinary nature of the Faculty of Media & Creative Arts to create collaborative opportunities between Humber staff, students and industry partners. Humber’s Faculty of Media & Creative Arts is committed to fostering data journalism, most recently creating and hosting Data Driven, a data journalism symposium for coders, investigative reporters, developers and data advocates.
