The Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University offer short-term research opportunities to individuals interested in working on special projects designed to advance journalism. Since this initiative’s inception in 2012, the Nieman Foundation has awarded 42 visiting fellowships ranging between two and twelve weeks. Candidates need not be practicing journalists. However, they must demonstrate the ways in which their work at Harvard and the Nieman Foundation may improve the prospects for journalism’s future.

Knight Visiting Nieman Fellows utilize the extensive resources at Harvard and MIT, including local scholars, research centers and libraries, to achieve concrete results, either developing a project that can be completed during the time spent at Harvard or as part of a larger undertaking that continues after the fellowship period ends.

Benefits of Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowship

For fellows not supported by an employer during the Knight Visiting fellowship program, Nieman Foundation will provide a stipend of $1,350 per week. However, if an employer keeps the fellow on salary during the fellowship because the project benefits the organization, fellows will not receive any stipend.

Moreover, if a fellow does not reside in the Boston area or otherwise have accommodations, free use of a furnished one-bedroom apartment will be available for the length of the fellowship.
