Information Session: Pulitzer Center International Reporting Fellowship
October 24, 2018
5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. EDT
Location: Maguire Hall Room 304 Map
Many of today’s international crises have a strong religious component, yet media coverage often omits or oversimplifies these complexities and nuances. The Berkley Center believes that a deep examination of faith and values is critical to address today’s global challenges, and that the open engagement of religious and cultural traditions with one another can promote peace. With this mission in mind, the center will select one Georgetown student annually to receive the Pulitzer Center International Reporting Fellowship. Projects should investigate or illuminate the religious dimension of an international issue, bringing to light what is often overlooked, untold, or misunderstood. Applications are currently being accepted for the summer 2019 round of fellowships.
The information session offered a chance to learn from Pulitzer Center representatives and from last year's recipient, Julia Friedmann (SFS'19), what the fellowship entails and how it is structured. This was also an opportunity to ask questions about application requirements.
A reception and public event with Pulitzer grantee journalist Danny Gold followed the meeting. For more information on the event, please visit the event page.
