The International Women’s Media Foundation-IWMF is accepting applications for the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship, created in memory of The Boston Globe correspondent and IWMF Courage in Journalism Award (1998) winner Elizabeth Neuffer, who died while reporting in Iraq on May 9, 2003.

The Neuffer Fellowship is open to women, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming 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. Applicants may be staff or freelance journalists.

Fluency in English is required, in order to fully participate in and benefit from the Fellowship.

The selected journalist will spend six months in a program with access to MIT’s Center for International Studies and media outlets like The Boston Globe and The New York Times.
