Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government is accepting applications for the Joan Shorenstein Center Fellowship in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the United States from journalists with at least five years of experience who are interested in sharing, expanding and researching public policy and political affairs.
The Joan Shorenstein Fellowship Programme is designed to provide journalists, scholars, politicians, and policymakers with an opportunity for reflection. It offers busy professionals the time and resources needed to think, research, and write on issues central to media and politics.
The primary focus of a fellow is to research and write a paper on a media/politics topic. The Shorenstein Center will strives to create an environment for fellows to do their best work, with faculty support, weekly discussion meetings with peers, and all the resources that Harvard has to offer, including world-class libraries and leading experts on a vast array of subjects.
Interested applicants for the Fellowships must be a working journalist, politician, scholar or policymaker currently or recently active in the field.
Applicants must be available to be in residence, full-time, for one semester (September through December or February through May) in Cambridge, MA. The fellowship will not consider requests for remote or non-residential fellowships.
Fellows will receive a US$30,000 stipend disbursed in four installments over the semester. Travel and living expenses are not covered by the center.
A workstation, computer, and telephone are provided. To apply, please send a cover letter, a completed application form, a research project proposal, a curriculum vitae/resume and recommendations.
