Offer: The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University

International Fellowships
The Nieman Foundation selects up to 12 International fellows each year. International Nieman Fellowships are reserved for citizens of nations other than the United States*, including journalists with non-U.S. citizenship working in the United States or working for U.S. media companies.

Since the first International fellow joined the class of 1951, fellows from 91 countries and territories have spent a year as a Nieman fellow.

Prospective Nieman fellows must be fluent in speaking, reading and writing English. All Nieman seminars and Harvard classes are in English, so proficiency in English is necessary to benefit fully from the Nieman experience.

While funds from the original Nieman bequest are restricted to U.S. citizens, international candidates selected as fellows work with the Nieman staff to find financial support from sources outside the Nieman Foundation. Obtaining funding is not a condition of being awarded a fellowship.

Applications from International candidates are reviewed by the Nieman curator and selected candidates are notified in early March.

For more information about International Fellowships, send an e-mail to

The deadline for application submission is Dec. 1.
