The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University has selected 24 journalists from the United States and abroad to join the 72nd class of Nieman Fellows for 2010.
Among them are seven journalists from newspapers and the Associated Press.
Nieman Foundation Curator Bob Giles said in a statement that members of the incoming class reflect the changing news industry: “This year, we received applications from — and awarded fellowships to — more freelance journalists than ever before. They are highly talented professionals who by choice or circumstance don’t hold staff positions with established news organizations. In response to their needs and those of all the Nieman Fellows, we will introduce a yearlong multimedia curriculum in the fall, designed to teach new media skills in what is becoming an increasingly competitive market.”
The entire list can be found at the Nieman site.
