Reporting Grant: Proposals sought on Reproductive Health, deadline 4 October

The Pulitzer Center seeks applications from African journalists to participate in a collaborative reporting project on reproductive health in Africa. Based on a model developed to cover water and sanitation in West Africa, this collaboration will partner four African journalists and one journalist with strong ties to leading international news organizations (currently under recruitment) who will serve as project leader. Together they will produce a body of reporting focused on reproductive health that will be distributed in African and international outlets.

Grant Description

The selected journalists and Pulitzer Center staff will travel to Dakar, Senegal to attend the International Conference on Family Planning (Nov. 28-Dec. 3, 2011). There they will attend conference sessions and press briefings, refine the reporting plan for their individual projects and participate in a multimedia training workshop led by the lead journalist and Pulitzer Center staff. In January/February 2012 the lead journalist and Pulitzer Center staff will travel to report alongside the African journalists in their respective countries. Individual projects will contribute to a collection of reports from the region to be published in the journalists' outlets and in US-based and international news media. Additionally, the work will be featured on a special Pulitzer Center web platform. All expenses at the conference and during reporting in Africa will be covered by the Pulitzer Center. Eligibility: These grants are open to English-speaking African journalists, writers, photographers, radio producers or television news producers; staff journalists as well as freelancers who live and work in the region and seek to report from their home country on reproductive health. Applicants should be able to demonstrate experience reporting on reproductive health issues. Women are especially encouraged to apply, as are journalists with expertise in a variety of media. for further information, see or send enquiries to Meaghan Parker: or
