Apply for Pulitzer Center – Gender Equality Grants. The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a non-profit organization that supports independent global journalism, is seeking applications for investigative data-driven projects on issues related to gender equality and the empowerment of women & girls. This opportunity is open to all newsrooms and independent journalists in the United States and abroad.

Grant Overview

Women and girls are disproportionately affected by global crises and face discrimation and violence worldwide. In the fight against the disparities they endure, they show resilience, strength, and leadership.

Pulitzer Center – Gender Equality Grants is designed to help journalists take to a new level the reporting on issues related to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. It values stories that elevate the voices of communities not often represented in the media, stories of resilience, and projects that tackle systemic issues of gender equality using data and investigative reporting. For inspiration, here are a few recent projects it have supported:

  • Women on the Move (The Everyday Projects)
  • Immigrant Women at the Front of COVID-19 Resistance in Buenos Aires (Anita Pouchard Serra)
  • Fighting Caste, Patriarchy, Climate and the Pandemic One Crop at a Time (Karthikeyan Hemalatha)
  • Siona: Amazon’s Defenders Under Threat (Tom Laffay)
  • ‘No Choice but to Do It’: How Women are Criminalized for Surviving (Justine van der Leun)
    Climate Change Pushes Girls in Northern Kenya Back to Early Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation (Neha Wadekar and Will Swanson)
  • ‘Buzz of a Mosquito… But With the Sound of Grief’:The Lives of India’s Women Prisoners (Jahnavi Sen)
  • Misgendering, Sexual Violence, Harassment: What it is to be a Transgender Person in an Indian Prison (Sukanya Shantha)

Budget and Stipend

Basically, there is not budget range but Pulitzer Center will consider projects of any scope and size and they are open to supporting multiple projects each year. The average size of a Pulitzer Center grant is $5,000, but may be more or less depending on circumstances.

The Pulitzer Center expects news organizations to pay freelance journalists for their work, though in exceptional cases, they may consider stipends to cover a reporter’s time, if provided in the budget with an explanation. It is OK to include costs of contractors, such as data researchers, illustrators, or data visualization/story designers in the proposal and budget.


  • Pulitzer Center – Gender Equality Grants is open to U.S. residents and journalists around the world.
  • Open to proposals from freelance journalists, staff journalists, or groups of newsrooms working in collaboration with a project idea.
  • Pulitzer Center wants to make sure that people from many backgrounds and perspectives are empowered to produce journalism.
  • Proposals from journalists and newsrooms who represent a broad array of social, racial, ethnic, underrepresented groups, and economic backgrounds are strongly encouraged.
