DEADLINE: Abrams Nieman Fellowship for Local Investigative Journalism

Event Date: 
February 15, 2018

The Abrams Nieman Fellowship for Local Investigative Journalism was created to bolster deeply reported local and regional news stories in underserved communities throughout the United States. Deadline: Feb 15, 2018.

Funded by the Abrams Foundation, the fellowship in the 2018-19 academic year will fund up to three Nieman Fellowships for U.S. journalists who cover news in areas of the United States where resources are scarce. The fellowship additionally will fund up to nine months of fieldwork at the fellow’s home news organization after two semesters at Harvard – or in the case of freelance journalists, a newsroom partner. During the fieldwork period, the Abrams Nieman Fellows may expand or develop an investigative project that will provide better, more in-depth coverage of issues important to the communities they serve.

This pilot fellowship program grows out of a shared belief by the Nieman Foundation and the Abrams Foundation that public service fact-based local and regional investigative journalism is a vital component in a healthy democracy and is in need of new and creative means of support.
