DEADLINE FOR U.S. JOURNALISTS (U.S. CITIZENS): JANUARY 31, 2020
Applications are open for journalists all over the world to apply for Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellowship in Journalism Innovation.
The fellowship brings individuals to Harvard University to work on a specific course of research or a specific project relating to journalism innovation.
The fellowship is a collaboration between the Nieman Foundation for Journalism and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard.
Proposals from Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellowship candidates may deal with any issue relating to journalism’s digital transformation including ideas for new revenue streams to fund journalism, the construction of new tools for reporting, or research into news consumption patterns.
Candidates are expected to explain how their proposals will benefit journalism.
On campus, Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellows draw upon the wealth of resources available at Harvard and in the surrounding area for their work.
Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellows are expected to fully participate in both the Nieman and Berkman Klein fellowship programs and serve as a bridge between them. They also are expected to share the results of their work with other fellows and through the Nieman Journalism Lab.
The Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellowship is open to both U.S. and international applicants. Candidates should either be working journalists or work for a news organization in a business, technology, or leadership capacity. Freelance journalists are welcome to apply.
