Pulitzer Center grant for underreported stories in Sub-Saharan Africa

Are you a freelance journalist, staff journalist, or groups of newsrooms working in collaboration with a project idea? If yes, then this is for you.

The Pulitzer Center is seeking proposals to advance wide-reaching and relevant journalism on issues impacting communities in sub-Saharan Africa.

The issues include but are not limited to water and sanitation, land degradation and coastal erosion, education, maternal health, and climate resilience.

“We place special emphasis on projects that inform behavior and policies that improve the lives of the communities reported on, and we encourage local journalists to apply,” Pulitzer says on its official website.

“We support projects across all media platforms and encourage ambitious proposals that combine print, photography, audio, and/or video for one or more news outlets,” says Pulitzer.

 “The most successful projects are those in which news outlets match our commitment by adding interactive or multimedia elements to enhance and showcase their original reporting,” it adds.

The Pulitzer Center vision is to be the venue for the world’s most innovative and consequential reporting, with journalism as the key element for mobilizing society through audience engagement strategies.

Founded in 2006, the Center is an essential source of support for enterprise reporting across the globe.
