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.
