Print, broadcast and online women journalists who focus on human rights and social justice can apply for a fellowship.

The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting applications for the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship, named for the 1998 IWMF Courage in Journalism Award winner and Boston Globe correspondent who was killed in Iraq in May 2003.

The selected journalist will spend six months in a program with access to MIT's Center for International Studies and media outlets like The Boston Globe and The New York Times.

Applicants must have a minimum of three years of experience in journalism. Non-native English speakers must also have excellent written and verbal English skills in order to fully participate in and benefit from the program. Freelance journalists may apply.

A stipend will be provided, and expenses, including airfare, housing and health insurance, will be covered.

The application deadline is April 21.
