Applications for the Robert L. Long Nieman Fellowship at Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University are open through December 1, 2018.
The fellowship honors the memory of journalist, filmmaker and news executive Robert L. Long. Over many years, Long worked with journalists covering international news and was concerned with the issues facing journalism in a rapidly changing world. He committed his life to challenging and inspiring his colleagues to expand their intellectual curiosity and maintain the high standards and integrity of their profession. Joan Rebecca Siregar-Long, Long’s widow, established the program at TPF to support Turkish Nieman Fellows.
The Robert L. Long Nieman Fellowship is open to journalists who are Turkish citizens. The fellowship is fully funded and supports fellows in two semesters of study at Harvard University. Fellows participate in the activities of the Nieman Foundation and engage with Nieman classmates and faculty at the university. They audit courses and take part in master classes and journalism workshops designed to strengthen their professional and leadership skills.
The international application deadline for the 2019- 2020 academic year is Dec. 1, 2018. Interested candidates should apply online to Harvard University’s Nieman Fellowship program. Information about eligibility and the application process can be found here.
