- Visiting fellows may be journalists or other professionals
Nieman Fellowships offer fellows a chance to study at Harvard for an academic year; Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships, which last 12 weeks or fewer, are also available for project-based work that will advance journalism in some new way.
Who: Nieman fellowships require at least five years’ experience. No minimum experience for visiting fellowships; visiting fellows may be journalists or other professionals in positions that support journalism, such as publishers, programmers, or designers. In addition, The Nieman-Berkman Fellowship in Journalism Innovation brings individuals to Harvard University to work on a specific course of research or a specific project relating to journalism innovation.
Amount: US$65,000 stipend, with allowances for housing, childcare, and health insurance based on the number and ages of family members. For visiting fellows, a prorated stipend for the length of the fellowship (about US$1,600 per week) and free housing.
