The Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships at Harvard 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 but must demonstrate the ways in which their work at Harvard. Also,  the Nieman Foundation may improve the prospects for journalism’s future.

Moreover, Knight Visiting Nieman Fellows utilize the extensive resources at Harvard and MIT. Further,  including local scholars, research centers and libraries, to achieve concrete results, either developing a project.  That can be complete during the time spent at Harvard or as part of a larger undertaking. Further,  that continues after the fellowship period ends. Additionally, fellows are expected to share their progress and findings either through publication on one of Nieman’s in-house websites—Nieman Reports, Nieman Journalism Lab, and Nieman Storyboard—or in another medium or format better suited to the project.


  • For fellows not supported by an employer during the fellowship, a stipend of $1,350 per week will be provided. If an employer keeps the fellow on salary during the fellowship because the project benefits the organization, a fellowship stipend will not be provided.
  • 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.


  • The proposed project must have the potential to advance journalism. This may be related to research, programming, design, financial strategies or another topic.
  • Those who should consider applying include journalists, publishers, technologists, entrepreneurs, programmers, designers, media analysts, academics and others who want to make an impact. There is no age limit or academic prerequisites, and a college degree is not in requirement. Both U.S. and international applicants are to apply.
  • Candidates must be available to be in residence in Cambridge, Mass., for the duration of the fellowship.
  • Prospective fellows must speak and read English fluently and have a command of written English.
