Journalist Assistance Application

The Journalist Assistance program helps journalists through a combination of financial and non-financial assistance. CPJ's Gene Roberts Emergency Fund, which dispenses emergency grants to journalists in distress worldwide, was renamed in honor of Gene Roberts, veteran U.S. journalist and former chairman of the CPJ board who was instrumental in the creation of the JA program. The program also raises funds for journalists from outside sources and collaborates with other freedom of expression organizations. When necessary, CPJ lobbies governments or international agencies to help secure refugee or asylum status for journalists. We provide logistical support to journalists when they resettle in exile. CPJ also refers journalists to resources, including information on grants, fellowships, and awards.
