Pulitzer Center's Reporting Fellowship

About the Fellowship

The Pulitzer Center’s Campus Consortium Reporting Fellowship is a mentored reporting project on an international subject, in which Pulitzer Center staff and journalists advise students through the process of an reporting experience.  WashU students are nominated from the pool of Summer Undergraduate Research Award (SURA) recipients, who are proposing faculty-mentored research projects on an international subject for the summer.  While carrying out their SURA-supported project, student fellows have the opportunity to work with the Pulitzer Center staff in Washington D.C. to further refine their projects and develop them for publication.  You will pursue your academic research with your SURA award, and the Pulitzer Center Fellowship will provide you with layered on mentoring on how to present your research through a journalistic lens.  The Pulitzer Center will support distribution of your work. 

How to Apply:

  1. If you decide that you do wish to apply, you will need to submit a SURA nomination file to the OUR by the March 1st deadline.
  2. Please email Dean Human with a notice of your intent to apply. You will be provided with a copy of the Pulitzer Center application, which you will need to submit directly to Dean Human by email. Dean Human will forward your application, along with your SURA project proposal, to the Pulitzer Center for consideration.
