In order to bring about urgent changes to the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic and advance the movement for racial justice in the American society, the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University is dedicating its next round of Visiting Fellowships to journalism projects that address these two challenges.

Selection of some fellows may occur prior to the deadline.
Selections will be made on a rolling basis, and fellowship offers will likely be completed by Oct. 30, 2020.
The fellowship will take place remotely.
