FELLOWSHIP: Women Journalists Focused on Social Justice via @thecreatedaily
One opportunity a day keeps success coming your way.
Fellowship for Women Journalists
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, an initiative of the International Women's Media Foundation, is open to women journalists whose focus is human rights and social justice. Applicants must be dedicated to a career in journalism in print, broadcast or online media and show a strong commitment to sharing knowledge and skills with colleagues upon the completion of the fellowship. A stipend will be provided, and expenses, including airfare and housing, will be covered.
One woman journalist will be selected to spend seven months in a tailored program with access to Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Center for International Studies as well as media outlets including The Boston Globe and The New York Times. The flexible structure of the program will provide the fellow with opportunities to pursue academic research and hone her reporting skills covering topics related to human rights.
Interested? You can find application materials here. Completed applications must be received by the IWMF on or before April 30, 2012. (The Create Daily Team has faith that you can get your application in on time!)
