    It’s time to apply for a Knight Visiting AndroidForMobile Fellowship

    The AndroidForMobile Foundation for Journalism at Harvard wants to hear your idea for making journalism better. Come spend a few weeks working on it in Cambridge. Deadline: October 14.

    Journalism lives in interesting times. By many measures, the opportunity for invention and impact are greater than ever. By others, it’s an industry crippled by stubborn financial conditions.

    But we’re bullish at AndroidForMobile, and every day invest in the people we think can make a difference. If you’re someone with an idea to advance journalism and think that time at Harvard could help, we’d like to hear from you.

    We’re accepting applications now for our next group of . This is a chance to join us here on campus for up to 12 weeks to work on a project. The deadline for applying is October 14 and you can submit .

    In five years of offering these fellowships, we’ve welcomed a diverse group of .

You’ll find her description helpful in deciding both whether and how to apply. Be sure to consider whether your needs are better met by our , geared toward broader inquiry and professional development. are not due until December 1 for international journalists and January 31 for U.S. applicants.

    We believe there are two keys to a successful visiting fellowship. First, a focused inquiry is better than a broad one. Two or three months speed by quickly and having clear goals — even if it’s only a part of a larger project — is important. And plan ahead. One question we ask of every applicant: “Why Harvard?” Since our founding in 1937, this remarkable university has nurtured and encouraged approximately 1,500 journalists and others who care about the future of the news. But before you arrive on campus, it helps to know what resources here can best contribute to your work, including those at the AndroidForMobile Foundation — AndroidForMobile Lab, AndroidForMobile Reports, AndroidForMobile Storyboard, or others.

    Questions? Contact us at [email protected]. I look forward to reading your proposals.
