Applications call for Nieman Visiting Fellowships Program 2020
For one year beginning this fall, Nieman will offer remote Visiting Fellowships in support of projects that advance racial justice and public health journalism in the U.S. This special initiative will provide targeted research opportunities and specialized training to individuals with concrete and innovative ideas supporting one or more of the following goals:
Visiting Fellows will work remotely but be in regular contact with Nieman staff, Harvard experts, and members of Nieman’s vast alumni network, who can serve as advisers. Fellows may utilize the extensive resources at Harvard University, including scholars, research centers, and libraries, either in developing a project that can be completed during the visiting fellowship or as part of a larger undertaking that continues after the fellowship period ends. Visiting Fellows will also be invited to digitally attend relevant programs organized for members of the yearlong Nieman Fellows class of 2021.
To be considered for these opportunities, applicants should prepare a brief overview of the requested training and/or a budget outlining project-related funding needs. (Training could include a spectrum of journalistic skills, from data mining to narrative writing.)
Journalists, publishers, technologists, entrepreneurs, programmers, designers, media analysts, academics, and others who want to make an impact on journalism. There is no age limit or academic prerequisites and a college degree is not required.
