Nieman-Berkman Fellowship in Journalism Innovation


Ausbildungsprogramm, Austauschprogramm


The Nieman-Berkman Fellowship in Journalism Innovation will bring at least one individual to Harvard University for the 2014-15 academic year to work on a specific course of research or a specific project relating to journalism innovation.

The fellowship is a collaboration between two parts of Harvard: the Nieman Foundation for Journalism and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. Both share a set of common interests around journalism, innovation, and the evolution of the digital space. And both have longstanding fellowship programs that give people a year to learn and collaborate with others in the Harvard community.

The Nieman-Berkman Fellow will be a joint fellow between the two centers — a full Nieman Fellow and a full Berkman Fellow.

Candidates will be asked to propose a specific course of study or project relating to journalism innovation. That proposal could deal with any issue 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. The candidate's application must make it clear how his or her proposal will benefit the field.

The Nieman-Berkman Fellow will be able to draw upon the wealth of resources available at Harvard and in the surrounding area for his or her work. Along with the Nieman Foundation and the Berkman Center, Cambridge is home to institutions like the Harvard Business School, MIT's Center for Civic Media, the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations, the Shorenstein Center for Press, Politics and Public Policy, and others relating to journalism's evolution.


The Nieman-Berkman Fellowship is open to both United States citizens and citizens of other countries. Candidates should either be working journalists or work for a news organization. Independent journalist are also welcome to apply.
