The Pulitzer Center has issued a Request for Proposals for its Rainforest Journalism Fund.
Launched at the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, the fund is a five-year, $5.5 million initiative focused on raising public awareness of the urgent environmental issues facing the world's tropical forests. The initiative will support nearly two hundred original reporting projects over the next five years, along with annual regional conferences designed to raise the level of reporting on global rainforest issues.
The Pulitzer Center and the journalists involved are committed to the editorial independence of the fund's grantees. One of the center's key roles in administering the fund is to ensure that grantees are free to conduct their reporting within the highest standards of journalism.
Journalists reporting on environmental and climate issues that affect the world’s tropical rainforests — particularly in the South American Amazon, Africa, and Asia — are encouraged to apply.
See the Pulitzer Center website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
