Pulitzer Center offers fellowships to support AI accountability stories

THE Pulitzer Center is inviting applications for its AI Accountability Fellowships.

The program seeks to support journalists working on AI (artificial intelligence) accountability stories that examine governments’ and corporations’ uses of predictive and surveillance technologies to guide decisions in policing, medicine, social welfare, criminal justice system, hiring, and more.

Interested journalists must apply for a reporting project they wish to pursue during their fellowship.

Enterprise and accountability projects that use a variety of approaches — from data analysis to records requests, and shoe-leather reporting — and delve into the real-world impact of algorithms on policy, individuals, and communities are preferred.

This year, the program seeks to support at least one project that examines the intersection of AI and conflict, war and peace.



    The 10-month fellowships are remote, beginning in September, and continuing until July, 2024.

    Journalists can be based anywhere.

    Staff and freelance journalists can participate in a fellowship and receive up to US$20,000 to pursue a reporting project.

    The deadline for the submission of the application is July 1, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
