The Joan Shorenstein Center Fellowship at Harvard Kennedy School is now accepting entries for its fellowship from journalists with at least five years of experience who are interested in sharing, expanding and researching public policy and political affairs.

The Fellowship Programme is to advance research in the field of media, politics and public policy; facilitate a dialogue among journalists, scholars, policymakers and students; provide an opportunity for reflection; and create a vibrant and long-lasting community of scholars and practitioners.

The Fellows will conduct research; engage with students, faculty and the Harvard community; and participate in the various events associated with the Shorenstein Center. Fellows’ research and ideas are presented at weekly research meetings where they discuss and defend their project before a group of peers.

The applicants must be journalists, scholars or policymakers active in the field of press, politics and public policy. English fluency is required.

Fellows are required to live in residence for one semester and will receive a US$30,000 stipend disbursed in four installments over the semester. Travel and living expenses are not covered by the center. Office space, computer, printer and telephone are provided.
