Each grant would provides journalists with a one-time $500 stipend to write a first-person, narrative or data-journalism story or multimedia piece (podcast, photo package or video) on either the coronavirus outbreak, challenges faced by journalists during the pandemic, or an issue important to Oklahoma in 2020. The piece would be published by Oklahoma Watch and shared in collaboration with the journalist’s news organizations and other news organizations in Oklahoma. The stories and multimedia pieces will be archived for future historical perspectives on the pandemic in Oklahoma.
