Nieman Foundation Visiting Fellowships
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard offers three short-term visiting fellowships for research projects designed to advance journalism.
Nieman Visiting Fellows are invited for a few weeks to three months, depending on the scope of the project. They will have access to the resources at Harvard and throughout Cambridge, including scholars, research centers and libraries.
Visiting Fellow�s employer is encouraged to extend the employee�s salary and benefits during the period of study. If such funding is not available, a standard Nieman stipend will be provided to the Visiting Fellow and prorated for the length of the fellowship. The Nieman Foundation will also help candidates find temporary housing in the Cambridge area.
Applicants need not be practicing journalists, but must demonstrate the ways in which their work at Harvard and the Nieman Foundation may improve the prospects for journalism�s future. This may be related to research, programming, design, financial strategies or another topic. U.S. and international applicants are welcome.
Those who should consider applying include publishers, programmers, Web designers, media analysts, academics, journalists and others interested in enhancing quality, building new business models or designing programs to improve journalism. The proposed project may be completed during the time spent at Harvard or be part of a larger undertaking. All visiting fellows are expected to be in residence in Cambridge during their study and present their findings to the Nieman community at the end of their research period.
Applicants must upload a proposal of up to 500 words on their project and how they plan to spend their time at Harvard, how the work will benefit journalism, and the amount of time, up to 12 weeks, needed to complete the work.
