Meet the Fellows

Current Fellows
The 24 members of the 76th class of Nieman Fellows reporters, editors, columnists, digital media leaders and producers in print, broadcast and online who work around the globe and across media platforms.

Alumni Fellows
More than 1,300 journalists from 91 countries have received Nieman Fellowships.

Nieman Pulitzer Prize Winners
For many, the Pulitzer Prize is the jewel in the crown of all journalism awards. Through the years, Nieman Fellows have won dozens of Pulitzers for their work, either individually or as part of a team.

Nieman Moments
Our fellows share what they took away from their year in Cambridge.

Knight Latin American Fellows
To encourage excellence in journalism and press freedom worldwide, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation supported Nieman Fellowships for accomplished Latin American journalists for moe than 20 years, from 1991-2012. Nieman Knight Fellows have shared their thoughts about the Nieman experience and how the fellowship enhanced both their reporting and personal lives.

South Africa Fellows
South Africa is the only country that has consistently sent a Nieman Fellow to Harvard each year since the first fellows from the country, Lewis Nkosi and Aubrey Sussens, were selected as members of the class of 1961. Funding for the fellowship is made possible by a range of South African sponsors through the Nieman Trustees of South Africa.

The First Two Women Fellows
We asked the first two women Fellows, Mary Ellen Leary and Charlotte FitzHenry, to give us remembrances of their year at Harvard. Their perspective, especially valuable to those women who became Fellows after 1946, illuminates better than any statistics the process of change within society and the Nieman program.
