The full-time, yearlong fellowships will cover the reporter’s salary (or part of it, depending on location) and provide additional support for the media outlet that employs the journalist (if on staff), or that agrees to host the Fellow (if a freelancer).
This year we are actively seeking investigations that include, or are tailor-made for, a cross-border approach. If you have yet to secure commitments from your collaborators, you should explain your collaboration plan. We will also actively work with the selected Fellows to identify potential partners within the network. Please note that applications should be done by individuals, and not by a group or media outlet.
Fellows are expected to devote a full year to their rainforest investigations and to publish their series or main story during the year of the fellowship. They will receive training and data, communication, and research and coordination support from the Pulitzer Center. They will work closely with their co-Fellows around the world, benefiting from one another’s skills and diverse perspectives.
The initiative will also collaborate with the Pulitzer Center’s Engagement team. Fellows will have the support of local education and outreach coordinators, who will identify outreach opportunities to share investigation findings with diverse audiences.
The Rainforest Investigations Network is funded by the Norwegian International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI). The NICFI grant includes an explicit guarantee of full editorial independence for the Pulitzer Center as well as for the Fellows and news organizations taking part.
