The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard houses a dynamic set of initiatives to promote and elevate the standards of journalism and educate and support those poised to make important contributions to its future. We do this through our fellowship programs; our publications, online and in -print; and programming that convenes some of the leading thinkers of our time.

More than 1,400 journalists from 93 countries have been awarded Nieman fellowships since 1938. Recently we added a short-term visiting fellowship for individuals with a specific project to enhance journalism who would like to spend up to 12 weeks at Harvard advancing their idea. Visiting fellows have included digital innovators, technologists, academics, and journalists from the U.S. and abroad.

Nieman’s publications include:

  • Nieman Lab, an online reporting enterprise focused on the future of news and innovation. Nieman Lab has a staff of reporters writing daily about the most significant developments in journalism and has become a leading source of news about digital media for an audience around the world.
  • Nieman Reports, a website and print quarterly that explores contemporary journalism’s most important challenges and provides a forum for the industry’s leading voices on issues of ethics, values, innovation and more. It also serves as a town square for Nieman’s global alumni network.
  • Nieman Storyboard, a website that showcases exceptional narrative journalism and the art and craft of reported storytelling. Storyboard has become an important gathering place for the top practitioners of narrative journalism to talk about what works and why.
