– Applications must be received in English.
– Some applicants get a grant on their first try; others have to work harder at it. One applicant who was twice rejected kept coming back and eventually went on to do a dozen different projects with Pulitzer Center support.

What are they looking for?
- They welcome in-depth stories that explore with nuance how AI systems are designed, sold and deployed in communities around the world.
