The Nieman Foundation is now accepting applications for fellows in the class of 2023. Approximately two dozen journalists from around the world will be selected to spend the 2022-2023 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 and master classes 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 yourself, we want to hear from you.
Application deadline for U.S. journalists: Jan. 31, 2022
Nieman Fellows receive a stipend of $75,000 paid over a nine-month period to cover living costs. The Nieman Foundation also provides some financial support for health insurance and childcare.
Nieman additionally covers the cost of attending Harvard classes for fellows and their affiliates. Affiliates are the partners and spouses of fellows. They enjoy many of the same privileges as fellows and may attend classes, use Harvard libraries and other facilities, and are welcome to participate in almost all Nieman activities.
