The Pulitzer Center partners with individual journalists and news organizations to support in-depth, high-impact reporting projects. We provide support through short-term grants and yearlong reporting fellowships. We accept applications from freelance and staff journalists worldwide.

HOW IT WORKS

The Pulitzer Center provides support to freelance and staff journalists to pursue underreported enterprise stories in two ways:

  1. Reporting grants: Funding for in-depth journalism projects
  2. Fellowship programs: Funding; training; data and research support; and a cohort experience with journalists pursuing similar in-depth or investigative stories

These opportunities also grant access to a community of thousands of journalists, editors, and engagement specialists that make up the Pulitzer Center's broader network.

GLOBAL REPORTING GRANTS

The Pulitzer Center’s global reporting grants support in-depth, high-impact reporting on critical, underreported issues. This is our signature, "catch-all" grant, so there are no restrictions on topic or reporting location. You can also explore our thematic and regional grants below.

JOURNALISM FELLOWSHIPS & NETWORKS

Through its yearlong fellowships, the Pulitzer Center brings together cohorts of reporters pursuing ambitious in-depth and investigative stories. The Fellowships emphasize collaborative, cross-border, and transdiscipline reporting. Fellows receive funding, training, and the support of dedicated editors from the Center’s Data & Research Unit. Our Engagement team helps the Fellows amplify their stories, engage with their audience, and measure impact.


INFORMATION & ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FELLOWSHIP

AI Accountability Network

Through the AI Accountability Fellowships, the Pulitzer Center provides journalists financial support, a community of peers, mentorship, and training to pursue in-depth reporting projects that interrogate how these AI systems are funded, built, and deployed by corporations, governments and other powerful actors.


CLIMATE & ENVIRONMENT FELLOWSHIP

Rainforest Investigations Network

The Rainforest Investigations Network (RIN) seeks to leverage investigative reporting and cross-border collaboration to address stories at the intersection of climate change, corruption, and governance in the world's three main rainforest regions: the Amazon, Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia.
