The Nieman Foundation for Journalism is inviting applications from qualified persons for the Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships at Harvard University for short-term for research projects designed to advance journalism.
Candidates need not be practicing journalists, but must demonstrate ways in which their work at Harvard and the Nieman Foundation may improve the prospects for journalism’s future and may be related to research, programming, design, financial strategies or any another topic.
The fellowships are also open to publishers, programmers, designers, media analysts, academics and others interested in enhancing quality, building new business models or designing programmes to improve journalism.
Successful applicants will be invited to the Nieman Foundation for a period ranging from a few weeks to three months, depending on the scope of the project.
Knight Visiting Nieman Fellows have access to the extensive resources at Harvard and throughout Cambridge, including local scholars, research centers and libraries.
Successful applicants also have the opportunity to work with Nieman Fellows and the various projects housed at the Nieman Foundation, including Nieman Reports, Nieman Journalism Lab, and Nieman Storyboard.
The application closes on September 29, 2017.
