The Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship provides an opportunity for a woman journalist working in the print, broadcast or Internet media to spend an academic year in a tailored program that combines access to MIT’s Center for International Studies and other Boston-area universities and two media companies, The Boston Globe and The New York Times.
With this flexible structure, the fellow will have opportunities to pursue academic research as well as hone her journalistic skills covering topics related to human rights and social justice.
Depending on her qualifications and interests, the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellow may spend time at The Boston Globe or The New York Times.
The companies will provide access to their networks of U.S. print and broadcast journalists and professional contacts, as well as their Boston, New York, Washington, DC, and United Nations bureaus.
The fellow will also have a key role in the Elizabeth Neuffer Forum on Human Rights and Journalism, a program scheduled each May.
