G Suite Program

Who Can Apply?

The G Suite Program is intended for small news organizations with fewer than 500 employees, that are not government-owned or taxpayer-funded (including educational and non profit organizations). G Suite licenses will be available free of charge to the beneficiaries of this program for a duration of up to two years, or December 31, 2021, whichever comes sooner.


Eligibility Criteria
Applicant must not be:

  • (i) resident of a US embargoed country,
  • (ii) ordinarily resident in a US embargoed country,
  • (iii) otherwise prohibited by applicable export controls and sanctions programs from participating in the program,
  • (iv) employed by a government-owned or taxpayer-funded entity,
  • (v) a nonprofit or educational organization,
  • (vi) a current paying G Suite customer,
  • (vii) part of a news organization of more than 500 employees at the parent company level.

We will strive for a balanced distribution of G Suite licenses to eligible applicants, including geographic balance. Therefore, not all eligible applicants may be selected for the program given the limited supply of licenses. We are partnering with leading news associations globally. Applicant must be a member of one of these organizations or their equivalents so that we can vet their eligibility. (see application for list of associations)
