DEADLINE: IWMF Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship

Event Date: 
February 25, 2021

The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) annually offers the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship, giving academic and professional opportunities to women journalists who focus on covering human rights and social justice.

During this seven-month fellowship (Fall to Spring), the selected journalist will have the chance to complete research and coursework at MIT’s Center for International Studies and participate in internships with media outlets including The Boston Globe and The New York Times. The flexible structure of the program allows Fellows to pursue academic research and hone reporting skills. Past Fellows have taken advantage of opportunities to publish work under their bylines through various media outlets. Fellows have explored a wide range of under-reported issues including gender-based violence, indigenous rights, and religious intolerance.

Apply by Feb 25, 2021. Includes a monthly stipend to cover housing, meals, health insurance and ground transportation during the fellowship.

Due to COVID-19, the 2021-2022 Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship may take place in-person or virtually.
