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.
