Journalist-in-Residence Fellowship

The Journalist-in-Residence Fellowship is for established journalists with a keen interest in scholarly research who need an extended period time to focus on a longer piece of journalistic writing. The programme is a collaboration between NIAS and the Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten.

About the Journalist-in-Residence Fellowship

The Journalist-in-Residence programme is intended for who need a period of uninterrupted time to finish an extensive piece of work. Journalists at NIAS benefit from being able to work without interruption as well being part of the academic environment at NIAS with a wide range of disciplines from the humanities and social sciences. The view is that sharing ideas with scholars from the humanities, social sciences and other disciplines can inform a Journalist’s work. In this way this Fellowship contributes to the production of in-depth journalistic writing.

Application and Selection

  • Journalists can apply via the Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten (see more information here)
  • The Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten puts forward a suitable candidate to NIAS
  • NIAS awards the fellowship in consultation with Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten

 

About the Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten

The Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten is a private initiative set up in 1990 by a group of well-known journalists. It funds articles, news analysis, editorial pieces, feature stories and journalistic books or biographies. The Foundation receives support from the Ministry of Education and Culture. It has contributed to the success of journalists such as Judith Koelemeijer, Geert Mak, Jeroen Smit and Annejet van der Zijl and many projects financed by the Foundation have been awarded journalism prizes.

NIAS-Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten partnership

The Journalist-in-Residence programme was initiated by NIAS Rector Henk Wesseling and Ben Knapen, directeur van PCM and aimed to give journalists from the Volkskrant and NRC the opportunity to write a book in an academic setting and without interruption. The first fellow arrived in 2002. Currently, the Journalist-in-Residence Fellowship is open to a greater variety of candidates working on a wider range of journalistic projects.
