The Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellowship in Journalism Innovation* brings individuals to Harvard University to work on a specific course of research or a specific project relating to journalism innovation. The fellowship is a collaboration between the Nieman Foundation for Journalism and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard. Both organizations share a set of common interests around journalism, innovation, and the evolution of the digital space, and both have longstanding fellowship programs that offer a year of learning and collaboration with others in the Harvard community.
Proposals from Nieman-Berkman Klein Fellowship candidates may deal with any issue relating to journalism’s digital transformation. Examples include ideas for new revenue streams to fund journalism, the construction of new tools for reporting, or research into news consumption patterns. Candidates must explain how their proposals will benefit journalism.
The Knight Visiting Nieman Fellowships at Harvard offer short-term research opportunities to individuals interested in working on special projects designed to advance journalism. Since this initiative’s inception in 2012, the Nieman Foundation has awarded 42 visiting fellowships ranging between two and twelve weeks. Candidates need not be practicing journalists, but must demonstrate the ways in which their work at Harvard and the Nieman Foundation may improve the prospects for journalism’s future.
Knight Visiting Nieman Fellows utilize the extensive resources at Harvard and MIT, including local scholars, research centers and libraries, to achieve concrete results, either developing a project that can be completed during the time spent at Harvard or as part of a larger undertaking that continues after the fellowship period ends. Additionally, fellows are expected to share their progress and findings either through publication on one of Nieman’s in-house websites—Nieman Reports, Nieman Journalism Lab, and Nieman Storyboard—or in another medium or format better suited to the project.
The proposed project must have the potential to advance journalism. This may be related to research, programming, design, financial strategies or another topic.
Those who should consider applying include journalists, publishers, technologists, entrepreneurs, programmers, designers, media analysts, academics and others who want to make an impact. There is no age limit or academic prerequisites, and a college degree is not required. Both U.S. and international applicants are invited to apply.
Candidates must be available to be in residence in Cambridge, Mass., for the duration of the fellowship.
Prospective fellows must speak and read English fluently and have a command of written English.

Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and Nikkei, Inc., parent company of the Financial Times, the publisher of the Nikkei, and the Nikkei Asian Review, announced today a new $100,000 scholarship for a student who is a resident in Asia. The Columbia-Nikkei Scholarship will be awarded annually for the next five years to exemplary candidates who wish to specialize in data and business journalism. Each September, the school will announce whether it seeks scholarship applicants interested in business and data journalism.
“It is our great pleasure and honor to form this new partnership with the Columbia Journalism School,” said Naotoshi Okada, President & CEO, Nikkei Inc. “We believe Columbia’s strong leadership in the area of journalism and firm commitment to the international regime of freedom of expression can enhance our Global & Growth Strategy together with the Financial Times not only in the Asia-Pacific region but globally.”
Nikkei has more than 40 companies in newspapers and publishing, broadcasting, events, database services and index businesses. Their 280 editorial staff operate across 37 bureaus overseas.
“We are honored to announce this exciting partnership with Nikkei,” said Steve Coll, dean and Henry R. Luce Professor of Journalism. “Nikkei is demonstrating its leadership in the profession, and in preparing journalism’s leaders of tomorrow.”
The Columbia-Nikkei Scholarship comes at a time when the Columbia Journalism School recently unveiled a three-semester Master of Science in Data Journalism degree. Students enrolled in this track will receive the hands-on training they need to report data-driven stories in the public interest. The new offering does not require prior experience with data or coding.
We are delighted that The Wincott Foundation offers a one-year full fee scholarship for a post graduate Masters student at School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.
The Scholarship is to support excellence in financial and business journalism and is available to any student with a place accepted on one of Cardiff’s practise-based vocational Masters courses. During the course they will be expected to focus on business and financial reporting in their elective module and projects.
Business, Finance and Economics journalism is an area of specialist expertise of growing importance. As such, for graduates with a focus on these areas there are very strong employment opportunities.
It’s about more than market reporting. As Luigi Zingales, professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, put it in his Wincott Memorial Lecture in 2015:
“Inquisitive, daring and influential media outlets willing to take a strong stand against economic power are essential in a competitive capitalist society. They are our defence against crony capitalism.”
Develop your academic understanding of the media industry, improve your knowledge and focus on an in-depth piece of research away from the pressure of tight deadlines.
The media industry is undergoing profound change, and evolving practice means agile thinking and a deep understanding of the major issues and challenges are key to industry success.
