The Nieman Visiting Fellowships at Harvard offer short-term research opportunities to individuals interested in working on special projects designed to advance journalism. Candidates need not be practicing journalists but must demonstrate how their work at Harvard and the Nieman Foundation may improve the prospects for journalism’s future. There is no age limit or academic prerequisites, and a college degree is not required. Both U.S. and international applicants are invited to apply. Candidates must be available to be in residence in Cambridge, Mass., for the duration of the fellowship. Most fellowships are between four and eight weeks. A stipend of $1,325 per week will be provided. International Nieman Fellowship applicants apply by December 1.
