The goal of the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship is to provide a woman journalist with a transformative experience that will impact her career by offering her the opportunity to conduct research at leading academic institutions and build journalistic skills. The Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship seeks to impact public awareness of human rights journalism by encouraging dialogue and discussion about critical human rights issues.


Where will the fellowship take place?
Each fellowship will be tailored specifically to the recipient. Working with the IWMF, the fellow will design a program that will enable her to pursue academic research while improving her ability to cover human rights and social justice by increasing her journalistic skills.

The fellow will be based at the Center for International Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts as a research associate during the research component of the fellowship. During the journalism portion of the fellowship, she may spend time at the Boston Globe, The New York Times, and other media outlets.



How many fellows will be selected?
One journalist will be selected for the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship each year.


What expenses will be covered during the course of the fellowship?
A fixed stipend will be provided to cover housing, meals and ground transportation during the fellowship. Round-trip economy airfare will be covered from the fellow's home country or city to Washington, D.C., and from Washington, D.C., to the fellowship city. The fellow will also receive health insurance during the program. The fellowship does not provide salary or honoraria.

For fellows from outside of the United States, the fellowship also covers the costs of applying for and obtaining a U.S. visa.

The fellow will be fully responsible for any additional incidental expenses and other costs.



Eligible African Countries  

Any African country




Who is eligible to apply for the fellowship?
The Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship is open to women journalists worldwide whose work focuses on human rights and social justice. Journalists working in the print, broadcast and Internet media, including freelancers, are eligible to apply.

Applicants must have a minimum of three years of experience in journalism. Non-native English speakers must also have excellent written and verbal English skills in order to fully participate in and benefit from the program.


How will the fellow be selected?
The fellow will be selected by a committee made up of family and friends of Elizabeth Neuffer and IWMF Advisory Council members. Candidates will be judged on their completed applications, the caliber and promise of their work on human rights and social justice, and their personal statements explaining how the fellowship would be a transformative experience.

Finalists for the fellowship may be interviewed by the IWMF.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
though you relied on the video to make your point.

You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

I deemed it a great responsibility to apply for such an inestimable and important opportunity.Thi s is appreciable to most developing countries in sub-saharan africa.My country(Ghana) is victim.I happen to come from a poor family in an undeveloped community.Major ity of the youth are school drop out.The few who are ready to learn have no support and destruction in the society.The old who have made not ready to support the needy but brilliant student.I know by the grace of almighty GOD some people are willing to help us.This will go a long way in changing our living and society.

Thank you.Quote:
