The Pulitzer Prize is one of the most prestigious honors in journalism, literature and music composition. Pulitzer Prizes are announced each year by Columbia University and awarded on the recommendation of the Pulitzer Prize Board. More than 2,500 entries are submitted each year in the Pulitzer Prize competitions, and only 23 awards are normally made. Winners receive a $15,000 cash award and a certificate; the winner in the Public Service category of the Journalism competition is awarded a gold medal.

Numerous UC alumni and 40 UC faculty have won the prizes since their inception in 1917. This year, two UC faculty members and 11 alumni were honored with Pulitzer Prizes, which were awarded May 6.
