DisHonorRoll Grant application for Outlets
You are work for an outlet and are applying for a $500 grant to produce a story as part of the DishonorRoll project. If you are a freelancer, please use the freelancer application.

Project Description:
Right-wing media excels at repetition. And that’s what we must do as well if we want to tell the story of sexual violence on campus. We need news outlets to publish and produce stories about campus violence even on ordinary days when there is no celebrity rape case—because on those days we know undergrads are still being raped and assaulted.

To solve the problem of sexual violence on campus, we need consistent, powerful storytelling that puts a human face on campus sexual violence. We need to make the statistics gripping by using the best data graphics available. And mostly we need to repeat the story, over and over.

You will be asked to sign a MOU on receiving a grant. These will be the terms:
1) You will brand the story with the kicker: DishonorRoll and use #DishonorRoll in social media about the story.
2) You will own rights to the story but you will give Bitch Media the right to republish the story on an aggregated page and further give the Media Consortium rights to republish the story in book/ebook form.
3) The editor of this story will work with project editor Lisa Factora-Borchers (Editorial Director, Bitch Media) to ensure that key terms are consistent with use in the project (such as sexual assault, etc).
4) You will work with project editor Lisa on calendaring the publication date of your story. Exceptions will be made for breaking news and investigative pieces, but features, profiles and such will be calendared so there is an orderly flow of content.
5) This particular call is for stories that will be ready for publication between February 1, 2018 and April 30, 2018. Stories should be no shorter than 750 words or 2 minutes of air time.
