The International Womens Media Foundation is accepting applications for the 2007 Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship, which provides an opportunity for a woman journalist working in print, broadcast or Internet media to spend an academic year in the United States.

Under a tailor-made programme that combines access to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and other Boston-area universities, and two media companies, "The Boston Globe" and "The New York Times", the fellow will have opportunities to pursue academic research and hone her journalistic skills covering topics related to human rights and social justice.

As a research associate in residence at the MIT's Center for International Studies in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellow will have access to a broad range of courses, seminars, working groups and other programs at MIT and several other area universities, including Harvard, Tufts and Boston University. She will also be encouraged to present her work to faculty and graduate students in open seminars.

The Elizabeth Neuffer Fellow will also be able to meet journalists at "The Boston Globe" or "The New York Times" and visit their bureaus in Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., and the United Nations.

The fellowship will begin in September 2007 and run until May 2008. The deadline for applications is 15 April 2007.
