This annual $10,000 award, made possible through the generous support of Eva Lohrer, seeks to recognize and celebrate the recent work of Pulitzer Center-affiliated freelance journalists who report on under-reported issues that affect us all. New this year, the runner-up will be awarded $5,000, again thanks to Eva Lohrer.

PLEASE NOTE: The work itself need not have been supported by the Pulitzer Center, just produced by current or former Pulitzer Center grantees or fellows.

CONSEIL SUR COVID-19 : Compte tenu des restrictions sévères en matière de déplacements, veuillez ne pas soumettre de propositions à moins que vous ne soyez convaincu que le travail sur le terrain peut être achevé dans un délai relativement court et sans risque pour votre sécurité et celle des autres.

De nombreux gouvernements conseillent les communautés locales ou d'autres communautés éloignées sur le risque particulier que le nouveau Coronavirus (COVID-19) représente pour elles. Dans le cadre des efforts déployés pour protéger la santé de ces communautés et compte tenu du risque que peuvent représenter les visiteurs, nous n'accepterons pas de propositions de projets impliquant des voyages dans des communautés autochtones, rurales ou enclavées avant la fin de la crise. Nous vous informerons de la date de reprise de ces propositions et vous encourageons à contacter congobasin.rjf@pulitzercenter.org pour toute question.

Deadline is rolling.  Within a week of your submission, you should receive a confirmation of receipt. Questions? Contact: sea.rjf@pulitzercenter.org

TƯ VẤN COVID-19: Do các hạn chế nghiêm ngặt về di chuyển ở từng khu vực, hãy tạm hoãn nộp các đề xuất dự án cho đến khi bạn chắc chắn có thể sớm hoàn thành thực địa và không mạo hiểm sự an toàn của bạn và những người khác. Nhiều chính phủ tư vấn một số nguy cơ đặc thù mà virus corona (COVID-19) đe dọa các cộng đồng biệt lập hoặc cộng đồng tộc người thiểu số. Nhằm thực hiện những nỗ lực bảo vệ sức khỏe của các cộng đồng này cũng như hạn chế lo ngại về nguy cơ mà khách bên ngoài có thể mang đến, chúng tôi sẽ không nhận các đề xuất từ những dự án liên quan đến việc di chuyển đến các cộng đồng biệt lập, truyền thống, và bản địa cho đến khi đại dịch kết thúc. Chúng tôi sẽ thông báo khi nào các đề xuất như vậy có thể nộp và khuyến khích bạn liên hệ với sea.rjf@pulitzercenter.org nếu có bất kỳ câu hỏi nào.

Thank you so much for your interest in the spring 2021 Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellowship!

How can engagement with underreported global news stories support existing curricula, while also preparing students to engage curiously, critically, and empathetically with the world? As part of this paid, virtual fellowship, a small cohort of educators will explore this question in a community with other passionate fellows, award-winning journalists, and the Pulitzer Center education team.

Fellows will develop short units (three–10 class periods) that engage their students in making local connections to global news, practicing media literacy skills, and building empathy. Fellows will then implement their short units, evaluate student outcomes, and share their projects publicly through the Pulitzer Center’s online lesson library and virtual professional development programs. Spring 2021 applicants will have the option to apply for one or both of the following fellowship tracks:

1. Stories of Migration: Going beyond the headlines (open to educators nationwide)

2. Journalism and Justice: Making local connections to global issues (open to educators in Chicago, Illinois, exclusively)

Upon successful completion of the program, fellows will be provided with …

  • An $800 stipend
  • A Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellow digital badge
  • A certificate for 25 professional learning units (PLUs)

Fellows will only be selected to participate in one track.

Click here to find more information about eligibility, key dates, and fellowship details and requirements. If you have further questions, please reach out to us at education@pulitzercenter.org.

Deadline: The last day to apply is February 8, 2021.
