Applications open for Martin Wise Goodman Canadian Nieman Fellowship

Applications are now being accepted for the Martin Wise Goodman Canadian Nieman Fellowship at Harvard for the 2017-18 academic year. The Canadian fellowship is funded by the Martin Wise Goodman Trust in the name of the former president of the Toronto Star

Nieman fellowships are awarded to up to 12 American and 12 international journalists each year. One Canadian is eligible. 

The one-year sabbatical, covering tuition, stipend and medical expenses, is worth approximately $75,000; the Canadian award is made to a successful applicant every second year, joining with up to 24 mid-career journalists working in print, broadcast, digital and audiovisual media who receive one of the annual Niemans. 

All applicants for academic-year Nieman Fellowships, including freelancers, must be working journalists with at least five years of full-time media experience.   The fellowships are for two full semesters at Harvard, auditing classes at the university (and other universities, including MIT and Tufts) and taking part in seminars, master classes and conferences designed to strengthen their professional skills and leadsership capabilities. 

Applications by the individual journalist must be made by means of an online application portal. The deadline is January 6, 2017. 

Recent winners were Stephen Maher of the National Post, Laura-Julie Perrault of La Presse, David Skok of Global News and Jana Juginovic of CTV News.
