Small public-interest media grants

The Media Research Hub has announced the availability of small-ish grants for advocacy groups working on media reform:

Small grants of up to $7,500 are available for research that supports public-interest efforts to change the media / telecommunications infrastructure, practices, policies or content. The grants are intended for short-term, advocacy-centered research, completable and usable by advocacy partners within the next 4-12 months. Recent small grants recipients were announced November 16, 2007. To be considered for the next round of small grants, please submit your proposal online by September 8, 2008.

Applicant Criteria

Proposals must be:

* Submitted by a US-based nonprofit advocacy, organizing or community group working on media and/or telecommunications issues. Groups with nonprofit fiscal sponsorship are also eligible. (A limited number of international non-profit organizations will be solicited by invitation only.)

* Structured as a partnership with an academic researcher based at a university, college or other research institution. This can include advanced graduate students.

There are no citizenship requirements for participants in these projects.

If you win, don’t forget my finder’s fee! :)
