The Abrams Nieman Fellowship for Local Investigative Journalism is a pilot program at the Nieman Foundation designed to support investigative journalism in communities with limited reporting resources. Available for up to three journalists who cover news in underserved communities in the U.S., it will fund up to nine months of fieldwork at the fellow’s home news organization after two semesters at Harvard – or in the case of freelance journalists, a newsroom partner. During the fieldwork period, the Abrams Nieman Fellows may expand or develop an investigative project that will provide better, more in-depth coverage of issues important to the communities they serve.
During the 2018-2019 academic year spent at Harvard, the Abrams Nieman Fellows will acquire new knowledge and skills, broaden their understanding of issues important to their communities, build leadership potential and develop an extensive network of expert contacts and potential collaborators in preparation of their fieldwork.
Candidates for the fellowship must be working journalists with at least five years of full-time media experience. Print, radio, TV and online editors and journalists are all eligible, as are freelancers. The application deadline for the 2018-19 Abrams Nieman Fellowships is Feb. 15, 2018. For more information about the program and how to apply, visit our website. Or go directly to the online application.
