Fellowships

Citizens of Canada

Special funding is available for journalists from Canada. Canadian citizens should follow the steps below when applying for a Nieman Fellowship.

Canadian Fellowship

The Martin Wise Goodman Trust sponsors one Canadian Nieman Fellowship every other academic year. Martin Goodman was the president of the Toronto Star and a member of the Nieman class of 1962. The next sponsored fellowship will take place in the 2019-2020 academic year.

The Canadian Nieman Fellowship sponsored by the Martin Wise Goodman Trust is open to Canadian journalists working in Canada. In years when a Canadian Fellowship sponsored by the Goodman Trust is not offered, Canadian citizens may apply in the general pool for an international Nieman Fellowship. Canadian citizens who work outside of Canada for non-Canadian publications should also apply to the international Nieman Fellowship general pool.

Candidates for the 2019-2020 Martin Wise Goodman Canadian Nieman Fellowship will apply with the International Nieman Fellowship application, which will open on Oct. 1. The application deadline is Dec. 1, 2018.

Finalist interviews will take place in Canada with the Goodman Trust Selection Committee around late February or early March. The fellowship offer will be made in March, and the Nieman class of 2020 will be announced in May 2019.

To learn more about application requirements, read through our How to Apply section. For more information about the Goodman Trust selection process, please refer to their website or contact Lauren Goodman at canadiannieman@gmail.com.
