Note on COVID-19: Due to the ongoing pandemic and changing conditions of travel, the Pulitzer Center 2021 Reporting Fellowship is accepting pitches that can be reported remotely or safely within your local community.
The Pulitzer Center offers fellowships to students at Campus Consortium partners to pursue international reporting projects. Pulitzer Center staff and journalists advise the student throughout the process. Final projects are featured on the Pulitzer Center website and in other news-media outlets (among them, NPR's Goats and Soda, Foreign Affairs, The Washington Post, Global Health Now, Huff Post, News Deeply, Nautilus, and The Atlantic). Students are encouraged to produce work in various media: articles, video, and photo essays.

Deadline: Determined by the participating schools.
What we're looking for: The Pulitzer Center is interested in reporting projects that focus on topics and regions of global importance, with an emphasis on issues that have gone unreported or under-reported in the mainstream American media. The Pulitzer Center's definition of "crisis" is broad - it is not limited to "conflict" reporting. We see great value in covering the too often under-reported systemic level crises, from environmental, global health, and women and children's issues to struggles for resources, human rights abuses, post-conflict reconstruction, or brewing ethnic tensions. We are interested in the stories that would typically not make the headlines without our support.
How to apply:
- Each Campus Consortium partner school has a separate application process and may have additional application requirements that go beyond the application form on the Pulitzer Center website. Please consult with your school to make sure you know the deadline, the amount of the fellowship offered, how you should submit your application, and whether there are requirements in addition to the completion of this application. Students who are asked to use the Pulitzer Center application will find the attachment below.
- If you are required to submit directly to the Pulitzer Center, please send your application to: reportingfellows[at]pulitzercenter.org
If selected, the Pulitzer Center staff will work with the Fellows to further refine the project and support distribution.
The Pulitzer Center hosts an annual fellows weekend in Washington, D.C., to expose students (and their professors) to the work of other fellows, provide an opportunity to network with professional journalists and editors, and further broaden horizons.
