Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellowship


The Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellowship is open to undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline currently enrolled at UW-Madison, and provides up to $5,000 in funding for students to pursue an international reporting project. The reporting project is generally undertaken in the summer with an expectation that fellows spend at least two weeks in their research location.

Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellows at Campus Consortium partners pursue independent journalism projects that cover a wide range of issues in countries around the world and in the United States, including climate change, migration and refugees, global health, race and identity, and human rights. Reporting Fellows benefit from Pulitzer Center mentorship, networking opportunities, and journalism resources. Most importantly, they become part of a vibrant community. Visit the Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellows page to read more.

The Pulitzer Center hosts an annual Campus Consortium Fellows weekend in Washington, D.C., to introduce students (and their professors) to the work of other fellows, provide an opportunity to network with professional journalists and editors, and further broaden horizons.


Graduate students and undergraduate students (juniors and seniors) in good standing from any department or program are eligible to apply.
