Thank you so much for your interest in the 2022-2023 Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellowship!


How can engagement with underreported global news stories and media literacy skills support existing curricula, while also preparing students to engage curiously, critically, and empathetically with the world? How can students cultivate a curiosity in global issues, develop an ability to think critically about how and why stories are covered, and consider how engagement with underreported news stories in their classrooms can inspire them to take informed action?
As part of this paid, virtual Fellowship, a cohort of up to 16 educators will explore these questions over the course of the 2022-2023 school year in a community with other passionate Fellows, award-winning journalists, and the Pulitzer Center education team. This year’s cohort will explore the following theme:

Asking Critical Questions: Underreported Stories and Media Literacy in the Classroom

In the fall semester, Fellows will participate in eight evening workshops to explore underreported news stories and connect with Center-supported journalists. As part of these workshops, teachers will also develop  short units (three–five class periods) that support students in  developing curiosity about underreported local and global issues, practicing media literacy skills, and building empathy

In the spring semester, Fellows will 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.


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

  • $1200 stipend (made in three payments of $400 disbursed in December 2022, and February and May 2023)
  • Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellow digital badge
  • Certificate for 35 professional learning units (PLUs)
