Please submit the following application for the AI Spotlight Series Track 2 consideration. One of our three coaches, Karen Hao, Gabriel Geiger, and Lam Thuy Vo, will teach this course.

Each course is designed to give you a firm grounding in AI and how it works, as well as the tools to identify critical stories—from spot news to deep investigations—that will highlight the technology’s impacts, hold companies and governments accountable, and drive policy and community change while avoiding hype and unnecessary alarmism.

Track 2 is designed for reporters who grasp AI, spend significant time covering technology, and want to go deeper. It will help you clarify your understanding of technical concepts and think more expansively about how to cover the different facets of this fast-moving story.

The course will require a dedicated time commitment: We will meet for 6 hours in one week, and an additional hour of recommended homework will be provided between sessions to maximize class time.

At the program's end, you can pitch the Pulitzer Center for a grant or fellowship to support an AI accountability reporting project. You will also join the Center’s broader AI Accountability Network, a global consortium of journalists investigating and documenting AI's impacts on people and communities.

Aqui você pode ser candidatar ao Fundo Semear - Tema Florestas. 

Por favor, leia com atenção o edital abaixo e caso tenha alguma dúvida escreva para mdarrigo@pulitzercenter.org

Applications are now open to join the second cohort of the Ocean Reporting Network (ORN), a fellowship programme for professional journalists who get the opportunity to spend a whole year working on an in-depth or investigative ocean story. 

Up to eight fellowships are available. The full-time, year-long fellowships will cover a reporter’s salary and provide additional reporting expenses. 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

  • We want compelling, impactful, innovative and well-developed story ideas that can be followed over the course of a year - not just a one-off story, or coverage of a general topic. 
  • Experienced environmental journalists working with local, regional or international media outlets, in online, print, radio and video format. 
  • Teams of journalists proposing cross-border collaborations. 
  • Dedicated team players who will devote a full year to their ocean investigation and publish regularly following a timeline decided together with the Pulitzer Center and their editors. 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?

  • Experienced journalists with a proven track record of investigative or in-depth ocean or environmental reporting; 
  • Journalists with a solid understanding of ocean issues and the scientific, environmental, social, legal, political, and commercial forces at play — and why this issue matters to our global well-being;
  • Staff or freelance journalists working on various platforms, including print, radio, video, and multimedia. Freelance reporters must have the support of a local or international newsroom that agrees to host them and publish the work they produce during the Fellowship;
  • Team players with the experience and ability to work collaboratively across newsrooms and borders, and the willingness to learn new skills;
  • Reporters who are motivated to participate in outreach activities related to their investigations, such as meetings in communities and visits to schools and universities.

TO APPLY, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING:

  • A copy of your résumé or curriculum vitae.
  • A description of the investigative or in-depth reporting project you seek to pursue during your fellowship (800 words).
  • A plan for how your project will be published and distributed, which audiences you want to reach and how you will engage them (500 words). 
  • A statement of purpose: How does this fellowship fit in with your career path and why you are best positioned to be a Ocean Reporting Network Fellow (500 words).
  • A letter of support from your media employer or a newsroom that has agreed to host you. 
  • Three examples of your most impactful investigations published in the past 3-5 years. 
  • Contact details for three professional references.

DEADLINE and TIMELINE

Applications for the Fellowships will open on Tuesday April 2nd and close on Sunday May 26, at 23:59 ET.

Please use this form to apply.

Shortlisted candidates can expect to be interviewed in mid-June to early July and start the 12-month Fellowship on August 1 2024. 

We encourage applications in English, but we accept materials in other languages if needed. 

If you have questions, please contact Jessica Aldred jaldred@pulitzercenter.org or Gustavo Faleiros at gfaleiros@pulitzercenter.org 

We encourage proposals from journalists and newsrooms that represent a broad array of social, racial, ethnic, and underrepresented groups, and economic backgrounds.

Please note that selected candidates will work remotely.

We invite education professionals working with students and teachers in K-12 learning environments to apply for education impact grants to finance education projects that utilize at least one resource from The 1619 Project to…

  1. Improve the awareness and critical thinking of students and/or educators about the legacies of slavery in the contemporary United States, and the contributions of Black Americans to every aspect of U.S. society
  2. Equip students and/or educators to take action and make change that advances racial justice

We are seeking projects that go beyond the individual classroom level to engage large groups of learners on the school, district, and/or community level. We encourage smaller districts and/or educators working in alternative learning environments to collaborate and apply as a multi-site or multi-organizational project. We hope that this grant program, like our 1619 Education Network before it, will develop a national multidisciplinary community of practice among educators.

Please click here to review the complete grant program details, eligibility criteria, and timeline before applying.

It is mandatory for applicants to read through our full version guidelines (PDF format) in this link: Link will be added soon

Impact Seed Funding (ISF) 2024 

Guidelines (Summary)

The Pulitzer Center Impact Seed Fund (ISF) supports educational and engagement initiatives addressing the most critical issues confronting our planet's ecosystems and communities. The 2024 ISF focuses on a range of topics, including rainforests, oceans, and climate change, with a particular emphasis on its interconnectedness with workers and vulnerable communities. 

Southeast Asia: Rainforests, Climate and Labor nexus

Impact Seed Funding (ISF) is a microscale grant provided by the Pulitzer Center to support education, research, or scientific activities with the aim to enrich the perspectives and knowledge within the university community—specifically students and educators. ISF facilitates a deeper understanding of complex problems and encourages the exploration of solutions and innovations to address the impact of human activities on rainforests, oceans, and the climate crisis.

We aim to support projects that inspire changes in perspectives, narratives, and actions, fostering a more informed and empathetic community. By utilizing Pulitzer Center-supported stories, the ISF initiative aims to:

  1. Improve the awareness and critical      thinking of students and educators about complex issues related to      tropical forests, oceans, climate crisis, including their impacts on      vulnerable communities. It encourages members of the university community      to explore innovative solutions to address these impacts.
  2. Equip students and educators to take      action and drive change to protect the environment, as well as the rights      of those most affected by environmental destruction.

The ISF is designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs of educators and communities, enabling applicants to create activities related to pressing issues of climate and environment, relevant to the local context. 

Launched in 2022 in Indonesia, the ISF expanded its scope to Latin America and beyond.  

Utilizing stories as the center of the proposed projects: The Pulitzer Center’s different programs have produced journalism stories that bring to light local perspectives, often from voices that are rarely heard. These reports focus on underreported stories and situations that are crucial to better understand the challenges around tropical forests, climate change and ocean. These reports produce high-quality visuals, in-depth analysis, and data resources capable of conveying complex issues in a powerful and digestible way, making them excellent educational and communications tools. As such, they can generate important inputs for ISF-funded projects.

Impact Seed Fund (ISF) 2024

Global

Guidelines

Impact Seed Funding (ISF) is a micro-scale grant provided by the Pulitzer Center to support education activities with the aim to enrich the perspectives and knowledge of the university community— specifically students and educators—about the problems, solutions, and innovations related to the impact of human activities in tropical forests, ocean, and the climate crisis. We aim to support projects that inspire changes in perspectives, narratives, and actions among communities as its ultimate impact. In this way, the main goal of the grant is to create more informed and empathetic communities about the underreported issues of the rainforest and climate change. The ISF is designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs of educators and communities, allowing applicants to establish activities related to pressing issues of the rainforest, the ocean and the climate crisis. 



The stories as inspiration for the projects

The stories resulting from the Rainforest Journalism Fund, Rainforest Investigations Network, Transparency and Governance, and Ocean Reporting Network programs bring determinant local and global perspectives, often from voices that are little heard. In addition, the reports focus on underreported stories and situations that are key to thinking about current challenges around tropical forests, ocean, and transparency issues. These reports produce many high quality visual, writing, and data resources, capable of conveying complex issues in a powerful and easy-to-understand way, configuring an excellent educational and communication tool. As such, they can generate important inputs for ISF-funded projects, and proposals need to be inspired by and utilize the stories reported by Pulitzer Center-supported journalists. 



Topics that will be funded by the 2024 project

The Pulitzer Center has supported reporting that works on underreported issues in tropical forests for the past years, especially via two journalism funding funds: Rainforest Journalism Fund and Rainforest Investigative Network. In 2023, we also started a grant program for stories with a focus on discussing ocean-related topics. Based on these stories, the ISF proposes to fund activities related to education and engagement of the university community specifically on these two topics: tropical forests and ocean


Who can apply?

  • Applicants should be professors or researchers in a higher education institution, or groups of students guided by a responsible professor, and not have the project applied in Africa, Brazil, or Southeast Asia, as these areas have their own ISF grant. Projects carried out through consortia of professors are also very welcome. 


Type of activities we fund

Examples of activities and desirable outcomes of ISF support may include, but are not limited to: 

  • Educational material development: Incorporating Pulitzer Center journalism into teaching materials and syllabus, field trip program, active citizenship training.
  • Engagement with students, academia and public: Student writing competition, debate, public dialogue, exhibition on campus, hackathons.
  • Research support and dissemination of findings: This may include updating ongoing research and incorporating new insights in a book chapter, organizing a seminar.
  • Content production and dissemination including short videos, documentaries, podcasts.



Resources and timing of projects

ISF grants range from US$2,000 to US$4,000 (US dollars). We expect projects to be implemented and concluded within five months of approval.


Aims of ISF

We believe in the power of knowledge and the role of education and educators in addressing multidisciplinary problems. Therefore, the ISF is designed to provide seed funding to educators in order to raise awareness of pressing tropical forests, ocean, transparency and governance issues among communities. The ISF provides micro-scale support to:

  • Initiate new collaborations or build on existing collaborations between professors, researchers, students, and journalists; 
  • Increase engagement between educational communities, journalists, and Indigenous and traditional populations; 
  • Encourage the use of creative images (e.g., photographs, short videos, documentaries, podcasts), data images, and information from the reports in teaching materials, student activities, curricular and classroom materials, or scientific publications;
  • Facilitate the adoption of the results presented in the reports into relevant research and other scientific products.


Requirements

  • Proposals need to be inspired and utilize stories reported by Pulitzer Center-supported journalists for the rainforest (RIN and RJF), ocean, and transparency and governance programs. All proposals must utilize at least one story reported by Pulitzer Center-supported journalists and explain how it will be relevant in the project. 
  • The activity must present an intended impact with audiences in the academic community (students or faculty/research fellows) or civil society that align with one or both of the following outcomes:


  1. Improve the awareness and critical thinking of students and educators about complex issues related to tropical forests, oceans, climate crisis, including their impacts on vulnerable communities and explore innovative solutions to address these impacts.


  1. Equip students and educators to take action and drive change to protect the environment, as well as the rights of those most affected by environmental destruction.


  • It is desirable (but not mandatory) that projects include partnerships with civil society, local social movements, and Indigenous or traditional community movements. 


Project Duration

The maximum duration for the implementation of the proposal is five months. Upon approval of the project proposal and the signing of  agreement with Pulitzer Center, funds will be transferred to the selected lead applicant. Formal start and end dates for the project will be established in the agreement.

Africa Impact Seed Funding (ISF) 2024
Guidelines
Eligible regions: Africa
Themes:  

The Pulitzer Center Impact Seed Fund (ISF) supports educational and engagement initiatives addressing the most critical issues confronting our planet's ecosystems and communities. The 2024 ISF focuses on a range of topics, including rainforests, oceans, and climate change, with a particular emphasis on its interconnectedness with workers and vulnerable communities. 

We’re calling for passionate educators and researchers to turn their innovative ideas on the issues of climate and environment into reality!

Impact Seed Funding (ISF) is a microscale grant provided by the Pulitzer Center to support education, research, or scientific activities with the aim to enrich the perspectives and knowledge within the university community—specifically students and educators. ISF facilitates a deeper understanding of complex problems and encourages the exploration of solutions and innovations to address the impact of human activities on rainforests, oceans, and the climate crisis.

We aim to support projects that inspire changes in perspectives, narratives, and actions,   fostering a more informed and empathetic community. By utilizing Pulitzer Center-supported stories, the ISF initiative aims to:

  1. Improve the awareness and critical thinking of students and educators about complex issues related to tropical forests, oceans, and the climate crisis, including their impacts on vulnerable communities. It encourages members of the university community to explore innovative solutions to address these impacts.
  2. Equip students and educators to take action and drive change to protect the environment, as well as the rights of those most affected by environmental destruction.

The ISF is designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs of educators and communities, enabling applicants to create activities related to pressing issues of climate and environment relevant to the local context. 

Launched in 2022 in Indonesia, the ISF expanded its scope to Brazil, Africa and beyond.  
 

Utilizing stories as the center of the proposed projects: The Pulitzer Center’s programs  have produced journalism stories that bring to light local perspectives, often from voices that are rarely heard. 

These reports focus on underreported stories and situations that are crucial to better understand the challenges around tropical forests, climate change and  oceans. These reports produce high-quality visuals, in-depth analysis, and data resources capable of conveying complex issues in a powerful and digestible way, making them excellent educational and communications tools.  As such, they can generate important inputs for ISF-funded projects. 

All proposals must utilize at least  one story reported by Pulitzer Center-supported journalists and explain how it will be relevant in the project. 


 

Who can apply?

  1. Applicants should be university professors or researchers based in an institution. 
  2. Applicants are welcome to propose a project  through a consortia of educators from universities in one or more regions of the country. 
  3. See our eligibility guidelines in the regional information box at the beginning of the page  for Southeast Asia, Brazil, and Africa, and Global.


 

Objective

We believe in the power of knowledge and the role of education and educators in addressing multidisciplinary issues in social and environmental topics. Therefore, the ISF is designed to provide seed funding to educators globally to raise awareness of key issues to their communities around the world and contribute to aspired positive changes. The ISF provides micro-scale support to:

  • Initiate new collaborations or build on existing collaborations among professors, researchers, students, local universities, most affected local communities, and journalists;
  • Increase engagement between educational communities, journalists, and Indigenous and traditional populations;
  • Encourage the use of creative materials (e.g., photographs, short videos, documentaries, podcasts), infographics, data visuals, and information from the reports in teaching materials, student activities, curricular and classroom materials, or scientific publications; 
  • Facilitate the adoption of the results presented in the reports into relevant research and other scientific products.


ISF grants range from USD $2,500 to $4,500 with different budget sizes in every regional opportunities, so applicants have to read through guidelines that are appropriate to their region or countries. We expect projects to be implemented within four months of approval.
