The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting seeks general and education interns throughout the year to get the word out about our international reporting projects, with the aim of increasing the reach of our projects and expanding the debate around the international issues they cover.
The Pulitzer Center is an award-winning non-profit journalism organization in the heart of Washington, DC. We support journalists to report on systemic global issues critically important to our understanding of the world but often ignored by mainstream media. We work to place their stories in high-end outlets, from The New York Times, PBS NewsHour, PRI’s The World, National Geographic, and NPR, as well as an array of social media.
We also create innovative educational programs to connect students, teachers and the public with the print reporters, photographers, filmmakers, radio documentarians and multimedia journalists who work with us around the world.
