Request a Grant Writer

Fellowship to a USA, Canada, or International female professional journalist for social justice and human rights studies. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for research and internships with major print media outlets. The Fellow will have input in the design of their academic and internship schedules.

The Neuffer Fellowship is designed for staff or freelance women journalists with at least three years of professional experience in journalism working in print, broadcast, or digital media. 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. During their time in Cambridge, Neuffer Fellows audit a variety of classes, attend seminars and events, pursue independent research and gain newsroom experience. 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. 

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.
