International Women’s Media Foundation Accepting Applications for Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship Promoting Human Rights Journalism

The International Women’s Media Foundation is calling for applications for the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship, named for 1998 IWMF Courage in Journalism Award winner and Boston Globe correspondent who was killed in Iraq in May 2003. This program, created with Neuffer’s family and friends, aims to perpetuate her memory and advance her life's mission of promoting international understanding of human rights and social justice.

One woman journalist will be selected to spend an academic year in a tailored program with access to Boston-area universities as well as 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.

The fellow will also have a key role in the Elizabeth Neuffer Forum, an annual program to be scheduled each May.

The Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship is open to women journalists whose focus is human rights and social justice. A successful applicant will be dedicated to a career in journalism in print, broadcast or Internet media and will show a strong commitment to sharing knowledge and skills with colleagues upon the completion of the fellowship. Excellent written and spoken English skills are required. Expenses, including air fare and housing, will be covered.

Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2006. The fellowship winner will be announced in May 2006, and the fellowship will run from September 2006 – May 2007.

The International Women’s Media Foundation was launched in 1990 with a mission to strengthen the role of women in the news media worldwide, based on the belief that no press is truly free unless women share an equal voice. The IWMF network is more than 1,500 women in the media in more than 130 countries worldwide.

The Program features a four-month residency at Columbia University in New York City with a structured curriculum of advocacy, networking, skills-building, and academic coursework. HRAP is designed to prepare proven human rights leaders from the Global South and marginalized communities in the U.S. to participate in national and international policy debates on economic globalization by building their skills, knowledge, and contacts. An equally important part of the program is to promote debate and dialogue on the global economy between these grassroots leaders and the faculty and students at Columbia University, as well as in the NGO, policy-making, and corporate communities.
The Program is designed for lawyers, journalists, teachers, community organizers, and other human rights activists working with non-governmental organizations who work on human rights issues. The current focus of the Human Rights Advocates Program seeks to cover key impacts of the global economy, particularly on the following issues:
* Labor rights * Migration
* Health * Environmental justice * Corporate social accountability
* International financial institutions

Activists working in the above areas from a gender perspective are strongly encouraged to apply. Participants are selected on the basis of their previous work experience on human rights and the global economy, commitment to the human rights field, and demonstrated ability to complete graduate level studies.
Full-time students or government officials will not be considered. Advocates must secure institutional endorsement from their organizations for their participation in the program and must commit to returning to that organization upon completion of the Program. Activists must also be originating from and residing in either the Global South or the United States. Fluency in English is required.
This extremely competitive program will admit up to ten applicants. The program will take place from the middle of August to the middle of December 2006.
The completed application is due by February 28, 2006. Please note that late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. For further information or to download copies of the application, please refer to our website at

There's still time to apply for the August 2006 semester at Butler and receive our International Student Scholarship Award. EVERY admitted undergraduate freshman international student will receive a minimum $7,000 scholarship. Moreover, the maximum scholarship award has been raised to $14,000. The increases in awards over the minimum award are tied primarily to a student's academic record in secondary school. While the SAT is not required for admission and scholarship consideration, we do encourage students to complete the SAT. Scholarships are renewable for the length of the student's program, usually 4 years. International students are still eligible for athletic or talent-based performing arts scholarships, but cannot receive both athletic/talent awards AND the international student award. However, students who receive international student awards and enroll in our engineering program may still be eligible for an additional $3,000 tuition remission.
