About the Fellowship

The Journalist-in-Residence Fellowship is for journalists with a keen interest in scholarly research who need an extended period of time to focus on a longer piece of journalistic writing. Previous fellows include Dirk van Delft, Aleid Truijens, Koen Haegens and Sanne Blauw. The programme is a collaboration between NIAS and the Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten.
