Job Description

The Nieman Foundation is dedicating our next round of Visiting Fellowships to projects that address racial justice and public health journalism in the United States. This special initiative will provide targeted research opportunities––including potential specialized training and project-related funding––to individuals with concrete and innovative ideas supporting one or more of the following goals: 

  • Advance the representation of journalists of color throughout the news industry 
  • Improve coverage of underreported stories and communities 
  • Explain the impact of coronavirus on an area or group 
  • Enhance reporting expertise and coverage of public health in a community  

These targeted fellowships, which may be awarded for up to 20 weeks, will take place during the 2020-2021 academic year, which runs from Sept. 2020 through May 2021. Visiting Fellows will participate in the program remotely and will not be expected to take a leave of absence from their organization.    

The fellowship is open to the broadest range of journalists, from those with legacy affiliations to those who work independently. We are especially interested in applicants from community media (including but not limited to Black, Latino, Asian and Indigenous news outlets) and anyone who works to serve communities that are underrepresented in media. 

Please review our website for full details about this new initiative and how to apply. Applications are due by September 25, and selections will be made on a rolling basis.  

Send any questions to We look forward to seeing your submission. 

Job Requirements

Those who should consider applying include journalists, publishers, technologists, entrepreneurs, programmers, designers, media analysts, academics and others who want to make an impact on journalism. There is no age limit or academic prerequisites and a college degree is not required.

Applicants who intend to continue their work within a news organization during the fellowship must request a letter of support from their supervisor, which should state the intent of the news organization to permit the applicant to work on the project for the duration of the fellowship period.
