Educators & Researchers

Exploring timely, innovative ideas and resources for improving journalism are important parts of the Nieman mission. Teaching reporting skills, no matter what media the reporter uses, are crucial to quality journalism. Articles in Nieman Reports magazine and the Professors Corner web site are important resources in educating the next generation of Nieman fellows.




Christopher J. Georges Fellowship Fund The Christopher J. Georges Fellowship Fund supports in-depth reporting projects for The Harvard Crimson on issues of enduring social value and the human impact of public policy.

The fund also sponsors the annual Georges Collegiate Weekend for college journalists, which is co-hosted by the Nieman Foundation and students from The Harvard Crimson.

The Georges fund encourages and promotes the type of journalism Chris Georges loved best: feature stories that do not simply examine policy making and reform, but explore from a human perspective both the intended and unintended consequences of these policies on the people who are affected by them.

Nieman Journalism Lab The Nieman Journalism Lab is a collaborative attempt to figure out how quality journalism can survive and thrive in the Internet age.

We don’t pretend to have even five percent of all the answers, but we do know a lot of smart people. Primary among them are our readers; we hope your contributions will make the Lab a collaborative exchange of ideas. Tell us what’s happening around you, or what should be.

In addition, here at Harvard, we’re working with the Harvard Business School on new business models, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society on understanding online life, and the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations on one potential path for news organizations.

Professor's Corner Nieman Reports' Professor's Corner will bring you teaching resources from the issues of Nieman Reports. Over time, we hope this corner of the Web will become a place you return to often as you look for ways to enhance the classroom experience of your journalism students.
