In order to be able to resume this form later, please enter your email and choose a password.


Applications must be received in English. Deadline is rolling. Within a week of your submission, you should receive a confirmation of receipt. Typically applications that are received in a given month receive a response by the end of the following month. If your proposal requires immediate attention to be newsworthy or timely, please note why in your proposed project description, and click the quick response checkbox. All fields are required, except where noted. Attachments must total to less than 5MB. You may enter up to 5 applicants per project.


Please disclose below in the section marked "Proposed Project Details" if you are receiving or have applied for any other funding for this project.


The form is adaptive so it will present the option to add all necessary documents as you move through it (such as references), depending on the answers that you give. For example, if there is more than one applicant, the field to add their information will appear only once you check the box that follows the text "Check if there is an additional applicant for this project."


If applying on behalf of an organization/newsroom, the individual information, such as work samples and references, of lead people on the project must be provided. This can be the lead reporter or reporters on the team or one of the editors. Explain that the application is made on behalf of the organization in the Project Description section. Additional information about the organization, such as a summary of work and work samples, can be attached in the Additional Materials section.


Contact editorial@pulitzercenter.org with any questions related to the general application.

Preliminary Budget Estimate



Data Journalism Grants
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting is seeking applications for innovative data-driven journalism projects that spotlight under reported issues. This opportunity is open to all newsrooms and independent journalists in the United States and abroad. 

We are eager for proposals that will employ cutting-edge data techniques, as well as embrace collaboration among newsrooms, whether that be across state lines or across national borders.  We encourage proposals that push the envelope in data collection and analysis and make use of advanced data mining techniques, such as machine learning, natural language processing, as well as spatial data analysis, satellite imagery, drones and sensors. We’re seeking compelling data-driven storytelling, based on original data collection and analysis and strong visuals, that has the potential to shape public discourse and hold the powerful accountable.

For more information, please visit pulitzercenter.org/data-journalism-grants.


The Longworth Media Fellowships

The Pulitzer Center is now accepting applications for the Longworth Media Fellowships, a collaboration with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs that aims to promote international reporting by Chicago and Midwestern journalists.

For more information, please visit pulitzercenter.org/longworth-media-fellowships.
