Pulitzer Center International Reporting Fellowship
As part of our collaboration with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the Berkley Center selects one Georgetown student annually to receive the Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellowship. Fellows investigate or illuminate the religious dimensions of an international or domestic issue, bringing to light what is often overlooked, untold, or misunderstood. The summer-long fellowship provides dedicated funding and professional mentorship to support student projects in journalism.
Working closely with the Pulitzer Center, recipients build on their project proposal and decide on storytelling strategies and a plan of deliverables. Deliverables may include a combination of articles, photography, audio, video, or other medium published on the Pulitzer Center website. Recipients are encouraged to seek other outlets for their work, though these need not be included in the initial project proposal.
Given complications resulting from coronavirus, we will accept applications for reporting that can be done in your country of residence or remotely. You may propose international or domestic projects, with in-person-only reporting, remote-only reporting, or a hybrid model using some remote reporting and some in-person reporting. Any in-person reporting must follow local health and safety guidelines and is subject to any Georgetown University travel restrictions.
The fellowship is part of a collaboration between the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. Learn about past Pulitzer Center student fellows and their projects here.
