All applicants for academic-year Nieman Fellowships, including freelancers, must be working journalists with at least five years of full-time media experience.

A Nieman Fellowship is an extraordinary, transformative learning opportunity open to journalists working in all media in every country around the world. Those selected for the program spend two full semesters at Harvard auditing classes with some of the university’s greatest thinkers, participating in Nieman events and collaborating with peers. 

Each year, the Nieman Foundation selects up to 12 U.S. citizens and 12 international journalists for full academic-year Nieman Fellowships. All prospective fellows must speak, read and write English fluently.

During their time at Harvard, Nieman Fellows attend seminars, shop talks, master classes and journalism conferences designed to strengthen their professional skills and leadership capabilities, thereby helping to fortify the news industry itself. With the knowledge they gain on campus and the relationships they build, fellows often return to work as journalism entrepreneurs, industry innovators and top managers in their newsrooms.

 

What types of fellowships are available?

Each year, the Nieman Foundation selects up to 12 U.S. citizens and 12 international journalists for full academic-year Nieman Fellowships. All prospective fellows must speak, read and write English fluently.

U.S. and international candidates may also apply for the Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellowship in Journalism Innovation and the short-term Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowship.

Citizens of Canada, the Philippines and South Korea should follow specific instructions when applying in order to take advantage of special funding.

Candidates with dual citizenship should contact the foundation for advice about whether to apply for a U.S. or international Nieman Fellowship: Nicole Arias.

 

How much financial support will I receive as a fellow?

Most Nieman Fellows receive a stipend of $65,000 paid over a nine-month period to cover living costs. The Nieman Foundation also provides housing, childcare, and health insurance allowances based on the number and ages of family members. Nieman additionally covers the cost of attending Harvard classes for fellows and their affiliates. Affiliates are the partners and spouses of fellows. They enjoy many of the same privileges as fellows and may attend classes, use Harvard libraries and other facilities, and are welcome to participate in almost all Nieman activities.

Because funds from the original Nieman bequest are restricted to U.S. citizens, International Nieman Fellows are encouraged to work with Nieman staff to find financial support from sources outside the Nieman Foundation. However, obtaining outside funding is not a condition of being selected for a fellowship. Funds typically come from foundations and journalism organizations in the fellows’ home countries. The Nieman Foundation works with several international foundations that provide stipendiary support to citizens of certain nations or regions of the world.

Recipients of short-term Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships receive a stipend prorated for the length of their fellowships as well as free housing for the length of their stay at Harvard.

Through generous gifts made to the foundation, Nieman is able to support a number of fellowships with endowed funds. Learn more about our named fellowships

In addition to a monthly stipend, fellows receive modest housing, childcare and health insurance allowances, depending on the size of their families.
