Global Citizen and the Development and Aid World News Service are announcing a new round of microgrants. We will give away two $1,000 grants to reporters, bloggers, photographers film makers or anyone with a compelling humanitarian story to tell.
Our grants are open to anyone, anywhere in the world. Our ideal grantees have excellent story ideas or projects underway, but need a small modicum of financial support to help them in some tangible way. (Previous grantees: http://www.dawnsdigest.com/grants) If you need a new camera lens; some help to pay for a translator; some financial assistance to pay for travel related to your project, then you should apply. Your project should already be off the ground, or close to it. You need to demonstrate to us how $1000 can be put to productive use.
The application is open from January 7, 2013 to January 25, 2013. Winners will be notified by the end of February.

Note: This is strictly a storytelling grant. We are here to help people tell local stories of global significance. Unfortunately, that means that we will not fund aid projects. If you are an NGO looking for support to build a school or something like that, you should not apply.
