Nieman_FellowshipThe Nieman Foundation is inviting journalists working in all media in every country around the world for Nieman-Berkman Fellowship in Journalism Innovation. Each year, the Nieman Foundation awards paid fellowships to up to 24 journalists working in print, broadcast, digital and audiovisual media.

Applications must be submitted by 1 December 2015. Deadline for U.S. journalists is 31 January 2016.

The 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. The fellowship is collaboration between the Nieman Foundation for Journalism and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard.

“For more than 75 years, Nieman has welcomed some of the world’s most accomplished and promising journalists, giving them the gift of time and intellectual resources to fortify their work. As journalism has changed, so too have many of the qualities of our program and of our fellows. Having recently added a short-term visiting fellowship to our traditional yearlong program, we now embrace an expanded cohort of developers, entrepreneurs, academics and others who are increasingly influential in how we create and receive news,” says Ann Marie Lipinski, the curator of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard.
