Pulitzer Center Connected Coastlines Reporting Initiative 2019

Pulitzer Center Connected Coastlines Reporting Initiative 2019

Deadline: August 15, 2019

Applications are open for the Pulitzer Center Connected Coastlines Reporting Initiative 2019. The Connected Coastlines is a collaborative reporting initiative on climate science in U.S. coastal states.

Supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education, the effort will build a consortium of independent newsrooms and journalists to document the untold or unappreciated ways in which climate change is affecting coastal populations.

This reporting initiative aims to increase awareness in local communities that are already navigating changing weather, flooding, and temperature patterns due to climate change.


  • Grants are intended to cover reporting costs and are based on reasonable, detailed budgets. Pu;itzer Center expects news organizations to pay journalists for their work, though in exceptional cases, they may consider stipends to cover a reporter’s time.


  • Open for all newsrooms and journalists who live in U.S. coastal states;
  • Proposals are welcome for all types of reporting: television, radio, print, multimedia, online, photography, and data journalism.
  • Proposals must also include a plan to use the reporting to engage local audiences in discussions about climate issues, including—but not limited to—outreach to local schools and universities.
