Applications Open For Nieman-Berkman Fellowship In Harvard

The Nieman Foundation for Journalism and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society is sponsoring at least one fellow for a US$60,000 fellowship at Harvard to carry out an academic year research project on journalism innovation.

Applications are welcome from journalists around the globe working for news organizations in a business, technology, or leadership capacity, as well as independent journalists.

    Candidates must propose a project relating to journalism’s digital transformation. Examples might include ideas for new revenue streams to fund journalism, the construction of new tools for reporting or research into news consumption patterns.

    Fellows receive additional allowances for housing, childcare and health insurance.

    Applicants must submit a personal statement, project proposal, work samples, four recommendation letters and a leave of absence letter by January 31.

    All applications will be evaluated by a joint Berkman and Nieman review team. Interviews with finalists will be held in the spring, and, if a satisfactory candidate is found, the winner will be notified in April.
