The fellowship is funded by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. The Reynolds Foundation grant provides $350,000 over five years for the Donald W. Reynolds Nieman Fellowship in Community Journalism at Harvard University.
The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University administers the nation's oldest mid-career fellowship program for journalists. Since 1938, more than 1,000 men and women from the United States and 76 other nations have come to Harvard as part of the fellowship program.
In addition to the fellowships, the Nieman Foundation publishes Nieman Reports, the nation's oldest magazine devoted to a critical examination of the practice of journalism. The foundation also is the home of the Nieman Program on Narrative Journalism and the Nieman Watchdog Project to encourage reporters and editors to monitor and hold accountable those who exert power in all aspects of public life.Click here for fellowship application details.
