Nieman Fellowships
Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University

The Nieman Foundation is now accepting applications for fellows in the class of 2018. Approximately 24 journalists from around the world will be selected to spend the 2017-2018 academic year at Harvard University, where they will audit classes with some of the university’s greatest thinkers, participate in Nieman programming and collaborate with peers. During their time at Harvard, Nieman Fellows attend seminars, shop talks, master classes and journalism conferences designed to strengthen their professional skills and leadership capabilities. With the knowledge they gain on campus and the relationships they build, fellows often return to work as journalism entrepreneurs, industry innovators and top managers in their newsrooms.

If you’re ready to challenge and transform yourself, we want to hear from you.

Application deadlines:

International journalists: Dec. 1, 2016

U.S. journalists (U.S. citizens): Jan. 31, 2017
