The clock’s ticking for your chance at a Nieman Fellowship

A friendly reminder: The deadline for applications for the Nieman Fellowships is quickly approaching. American journalists have one week left to get their applications in, which must be postmarked by Monday, January 31.

The potential reward for that application: A paid year at Harvard, studying the subjects of your choosing, learning from some very smart people, and enjoying the company of some very distinguished colleagues from around the world. Not to mention hanging out with your new best friends at the Nieman Journalism Lab!

Check out my earlier post for more details about the process, and get cracking if you haven’t already. (Every year, we get a huge rush of applications mailed on January 31. They always say journalists work best on deadline.)
