IWMF: Call for Applications

The International Women’s Media Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2014/2015 Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship.

The fellowship is designed for a woman journalist from anywhere in the world whose work in print, broadcast, or digital media has focused on human rights and social justice reporting. This seven month-long program will take her to Boston and New York to study at MIT’s Center for International Studies and work for U.S. media outlets including The Boston Globe and The New York Times.

Now in its 10th year, the fellowship was named for the 1998 IWMF Courage in Journalism Award winner and The Boston Globe correspondent Elizabeth Neuffer, who was killed in Iraq in May 2003. Created with Elizabeth Neuffer’s family and friends, the program aims to perpetuate her memory and advance her life mission of promoting international understanding of human rights and social justice while creating an opportunity for women journalists to build their skills.

What is the fellowship? Who are we looking for? Why should you apply? How do you apply?
