Journalist-in-Residence Fellowship

Open: Call for Journalists-in-Residence

NIAS and the Fonds Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten welcome applications for the journalist-in-residence programme, which enables journalists to work at the institute for a 5-month period in 2022/23.

Two Journalists for 2022/23

The programme allows for two journalist-in-residence fellowships: one from September 2022 – January 2023 and one from February – June 2023. Eligible journalists are working on a larger Dutch-language journalistic piece (book, podcast or documentary), which is in an advanced stage.

Journalists at NIAS benefit from being able to work without interruption as well as being part of the academic environment at NIAS, a collaborative learning community with a wide range of disciplines from the humanities and social sciences. They also receive a personal office, daily lunches and a stipend of 2500 euro’s per month.

Previous journalists at NIAS include Jaap Tielbeke (on the politics of climate change), Sarah Venema (on hitchhiking, art and fear) and Anne-Lot Hoek (on the war of independence in Bali) . You can read about their experiences (in Dutch) here. Last year, radio journalist Saar Slegers was awarded a fellowship. Listen to her talk about the fellowship here (in Dutch).


The application deadline is Tuesday 15 March 2022.
