The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) is seeking applications for its 2021 Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship program that gives academic and professional opportunities to women journalists committed to human rights and social justice reporting.

Those selected for the Fellowship spend a fall semester at the Center for International Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The Boston Globe.

Neuffer Fellows are also able to audit classes at other local universities including Harvard. After the fall semester, those selected for the Fellowship spend two months in New York City interning for the New York Times. With the knowledge they gain from these academic and professional opportunities, fellows return to work as journalists in their home countries where they advance Elizabeth Neuffer’s work in the fields of human rights and social justice.

Utilize This Offer

The Neuffer Fellowship is open to women and non-binary journalists whose work focuses on human rights and social justice issues.

All applicants for the Neuffer Fellowship must be working journalists with at least three years of full-time, professional journalism experience. Internships and journalism-related work completed as a university student do not count as professional experience.

Applicants may be affiliated or freelance journalists.

Journalists from any country around the world are eligible to apply. However, applicants must speak, read, and write English fluently in order to fully participate in and benefit from the Fellowship.

Due to COVID-19, the 2021-2022 Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship may take place in-person or virtually. The IWMF and its partners reserve the right to determine the format of the Fellowship prior to the Fellowship start date.

Accepting Applications until February 25, 2021 at 11:59 PM EST.
