DEADLINE: IWMF Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship

Event Date: 
April 21, 2024

The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) annually offers the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship, giving academic and professional opportunities to advance the reporting skills of women and nonbinary journalists from any country who focus on human rights and social justice.

The Neuffer Fellowship is designed for women and nonbinary journalists with at least three years of professional experience in journalism working in print, broadcast, or digital media, either as a staff journalist or as a freelancer. All nationalities are welcome to apply but non-native English speakers must have excellent written and verbal English skills in order to fully participate in and benefit from the program. The Fellow will complete research and coursework at MIT’s Center for International Studies and journalism internships at The Boston Globe and The New York Times. They will be based in Boston from February to May 2025, and in New York from June to July 2025.

Neuffer Fellows receive a fixed monthly stipend to cover their living costs. The IWMF also arranges and covers the cost of housing in Cambridge and New York City for the fellow. The IWMF purchases round-trip economy airfare from the fellow’s place of residence to the United States, as well as transportation between the Fellowship cities. The fellow receives health insurance during the program. The Fellowship does not include a salary. For fellows residing outside of the United States, the Fellowship also covers the costs of applying for and obtaining a U.S. visa. The fellow is fully responsible for any additional incidental expenses and other costs.

 We are accepting applications through April 21, 2024. You can read our FAQ and the Neuffer Fellowship blog (written by our fellows) for more information.
