April 20, 2020 — The Pulitzer Center has extended to May 1 its deadline for applications for two reporting fellowships focused on issues related to justice. These fellowships are open to current students and recent graduates (classes of 2017, 2018, and 2019) of our current Campus Consortium partners (which includes Hunter College).
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting is an innovative award-winning non-profit journalism organization dedicated to raising awareness of underreported global issues through direct support for quality journalism across all media platforms and a unique program of outreach and education to schools and universities. Find out more here.
Selected winners become part of the 2020 cohort of Campus Consortium Reporting Fellows and will be awarded a $3,000 stipend. They also will receive mentorship from the Pulitzer Center staff and grantees.
The two winners will be expected to participate in the Pulitzer Center Washington Weekend on October 9-11, 2020. This annual event exposes Campus Consortium Reporting Fellows and their professors to the work of other fellows, provides an opportunity to network with professional journalists and editors, and further broadens horizons. Travel costs and accommodations will be covered by the Pulitzer Center.
Writers, photographers, radio and podcast producers, and filmmakers are eligible to apply.
How to Apply
Individuals may submit no more than one application. Applications with an international focus, as well as those related to the United States, will be accepted. Applicants may propose projects on multiple platforms (text and/or multimedia).
In defining a topic applicants may wish to consider the following: What constitutes criminal behavior and why? How do identity and circumstance play into the criminalization of individuals? What role does the education system play? What are the links between civil rights, human rights, and the environment? What protections are there for individuals seeking asylum or fighting deportation?
The deadline for applications has been extended until May 1, 2020, at 11:59 pm (eastern)
