Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships

The Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships at Harvard offer short-term research opportunities to individuals interested in working on special projects designed to advance journalism in some new way. Candidates need not be practicing journalists, but must demonstrate the ways in which their work at Harvard and the Nieman Foundation may improve the prospects for journalism’s future. This may be related to research, programming, design, financial strategies or another topic. Both U.S. and international applicants are invited to apply.

The application deadline for the 2017 Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships has passed. Information about applying for 2018 visiting fellowships will be posted on this page in mid-2017.
