Eugene C. Pulliam Fellowship for Editorial Writing
Deadline for entries: June 22, midnight ET
The Eugene C. Pulliam Fellowship was established to enable a mid-career editorial writer or columnist to have time away from daily responsibilities for study and research. The cash award allows Pulliam Editorial Fellows to:

— Pursue other endeavors that enrich their knowledge of a public interest issue
To be eligible for a Pulliam fellowship, a candidate must:

— Have at least three years experience as an editorial writer or columnist.
— Demonstrate outstanding writing and analytical abilities.
— Secure assurances by the editor or publisher that the applicant will be allowed sufficient time to pursue the fellowship without jeopardizing employment. (Fellows do not have to leave their jobs.)
— Demonstrate ability and intent to publish work within 18 months of selection. (If selected, work must be published within 18 months of receiving the fellowship).
— All entries must be in English.
The selected applicant must provide a post-fellowship written report on how funds were used. Each Fellowship recipient will become a mentor to the following year’s recipient.
