Journalismfund Europe has launched, as part of its Earth Investigations Programme, a new mentorship scheme – the Editorial Mentor.

This mentorship aims at younger freelance journalists who do not have a dedicated editor to develop the right style and story framing.

Among this new cohort of mentors, we have names such as Internazionale’s Europe an Environment Editor, Gabriele Crescente, Robert Soutar from The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, or former Editorial Director of The New York Times en Español, Eliezer Budasoff.

Here at Journalismfund Europe, we are determined not only to support independent journalism by giving out grants to produce high-quality stories but also to help journalists grow professionally.

Improving the world, one journalist at a time.
