Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellowship in Journalism Innovation is now accepting applications from journalists around the world for its Innovation Fellowship.

The Fellowship, which is collaboration between the Nieman Foundation for Journalism and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard, will bring successful applicants to Harvard University to work on a specific course of research or a specific project relating to journalism innovation.

The partner organizations share a set of common interests around journalism, innovation, and the evolution of the digital space, and both have longstanding fellowship programmes that offer a year of learning and collaboration with others in the Harvard community.

 Proposals for the Fellowship may deal with any issue relating to journalism’s digital transformation. Examples include ideas for new revenue streams to fund journalism, the construction of new tools for reporting, or research into news consumption patterns. Candidates must explain how their proposals will benefit journalism.

 On campus, Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellows will have the opportunity to draw upon the wealth of resources available at Harvard and in the surrounding area for their work. Along with the Nieman Foundation and the Berkman Klein Center, Cambridge is home to institutions such as the Harvard Business School, MIT’s Center for Civic Media, the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations, the Shorenstein Center for Press, Politics and Public Policy, the Harvard Innovation Lab (i-lab) and other centers interested in journalism’s evolution.

 The Fellows are expected to participate fully in both the Nieman and Berkman Klein fellowship programmes and serve as a bridge between them. They also are expected to share the results of their work with other fellows and through the Nieman Journalism Lab.

The Fellowship is open to both U.S. and international applicants. Candidates should either be working journalists or work for a news organization in a business, technology, or leadership capacity. Interested freelance journalists can apply. Applications close on December 1, 2019
