Full Time - Mid-Level (Senior Producer, Reporter, Editor)
The Nieman Foundation is now accepting applications for fellows in the class of 2022. Between 15 and 24 journalists from around the world will be selected to spend the 2021-2022 academic year at Harvard University, where they will audit classes with some of the university’s greatest thinkers, participate in Nieman programming and collaborate with peers. During their time at Harvard, Nieman Fellows attend seminars, shop talks and master classes designed to strengthen their professional skills and leadership capabilities. 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.
If you’re ready to challenge yourself, we want to hear from you.
Note that whether the program will take place remotely or in person will depend on what is possible at that time given the state of the COVID-19 pandemic and any continued campus restrictions.

About Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard
The Nieman Foundation houses a dynamic set of initiatives to promote and elevate the standards of journalism and educate and support those poised to make important contributions to its future. We do this through our fellowship programs; our publications, online and in-print; and programming that convenes some of the leading thinkers of our time.
Nieman began as a fellowship for select journalists who were invited to spend an academic year at Harvard in pursuit of individual study plans to strengthen their knowledge and leadership skills. Since 1938, the program has awarded Nieman fellowships to more than 1,500 journalists from nearly 100 countries. We also offer a short-term visiting fellowship for individuals with a specific project to enhance journalism who would like to spend up to 12 weeks at Harvard advancing their idea.
