Nieman additionally is hosting 11 Knight Visiting Nieman Fellows for shorter periods throughout 2017 to work on research projects designed to advance journalism. They are supported by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
The Nieman Foundation has educated more than 1,500 accomplished journalists from 96 countries since 1938. The fellowship has expanded in recent years to include new collaborative and experimental programs. In addition to taking classes during their time at Harvard, fellows attend Nieman seminars, workshops and master classes and work on their research with Harvard scholars and other leading thinkers in the Cambridge area.
It is a huge honor for me to announce that I was selected to be a Nieman fellow. I will be moving to the Boston / Cambridge area in August to attend Harvard University in 2017/2018. Looks like the great news is non stop for me these days :)
Thank you to everybody who helped me through the application and selection process: Liza Faktor, Finbarr O'Reilly, Eliza Capai, Graciela Mochkofsky, Jon Lee Anderson and Elisabeth Biondi Check out the announcement, here.
