The Pulitzer Center's Campus Consortium initiative is a core component of our effort to create awareness campaigns around the global systemic issues that affect us all. We are proud of our growing network of partner institutions, which range from small liberal arts colleges and larger state universities to religiously affiliated schools.
The Center coordinates with each of our Campus Consortium partners on how best to launch the program and develop a series of visits, usually two multi-day campus visits by Pulitzer Center journalists each year. Partners also have opted to develop alternative programming with the Pulitzer Center from day-long international conferences to year-long seminars.
To develop the programming, the Center relies on our network of more than 200 journalists worldwide who have received Pulitzer Center grants. That number is expanding as we support 50-60 new reporting projects each year.
The Center is eager for university departments to work together on programming to foster broader discussions and more nuanced analysis of concerns that span disciplines, from journalism and business to law, religion and public health. This interdisciplinary approach receives support from the diverse topics Pulitzer Center grantees report on, from HIV/AIDS and maternal health to the human impact of commodities production.
Student Reporting Fellowships
At least one student from each Campus Consortium member is selected for an international reporting project of the student's choice involving a systemic underreported issue. Center staff and journalists act as mentors for students throughout the fellowship, with final products featured on the Pulitzer Center website. Fellows also work with the Center in efforts to further disseminate their products through media partners.
Additional opportunities for all students are available through our campus liaison and internship programs.
Each Campus Consortium partner contributes on average $10,000 to $15,000 per year to cover journalists’ travel, lodging and honorarium as well as one student international reporting fellowship. The Center provides logistical and promotional support for all Campus Consortium programming and mentorship for all student fellows throughout their projects.
Modified Consortium partnerships are possible depending on campus needs.
