The Pulitzer Center is seeking applications for the 2022-23 Longworth Fellowship to promote international reporting by Chicago and Midwestern journalists. The fellowships are made possible by a grant from The Clinton Family Fund to honor Richard C. Longworth, a former Chicago Tribune foreign correspondent and now Distinguished Fellow at the Chicago Council.

Proposed projects must include a credible plan for broad dissemination of the resulting work in Chicago or other Midwestern news media (print, online and/or broadcast). Both staffers and freelancers should be able to demonstrate committed interest from editors and/or producers. For freelancers, the credibility of a distribution plan is generally most evident in an applicant’s track record working with the listed outlets. Please do not have editors send letters simply stating they would consider the work. Letters from editors and/or producers who have worked with you in the past, and are interested in working with you again, are encouraged.
