Job Description

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.  

For more information about how to apply, visit our website. Or go directly to the online application.  

Application deadline for U.S. journalists: Jan. 31, 2022


Eligibility requirements: 

  • All applicants for academic-year Nieman Fellowships, including freelancers, must be working journalists with at least five years of full-time media experience. However, note that a journalist who is on leave or not currently employed is still eligible to apply.  
  • There are no age limits or academic prerequisites, and a college degree is not required.  
  • During the two years prior to applying, an applicant should not have participated in a fellowship lasting four months or longer. 

Financial support:

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.
