The International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting
applications until April 9, 2010 for the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship and
accepting nominations until March 5 for the Courage in Journalism Awards.

The Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship is named for the Boston Globe
correspondent who was killed in Iraq in 2003. She was a winner of the
IWMF's Courage in Journalism Award in 1998.

One woman journalist will be accepted to spend the academic year in Boston
(September 2010—May 2011) in a tailored program designed to combine
academic research with training in covering human rights. The fellowship
is open to women journalists from around the world whose work focuses on
human rights and social justice. Journalists working in print, broadcast
and Internet media—including freelancers—are eligible. Applicants should
have at least three years experience in journalism. Excellent written and
verbal English skills are required.

Learn more about the fellowship in this press release and these FAQs. See
also this list of previous fellows, who include Jenny Manrique of
Colombia. The application is available here.

Separately, the IWMF is seeking nominations for its Courage in Journalism
Awards. Past winners from Latin Americas include Lydia Cacho and Maribel
Gutierrez Moreno from Mexico; Mabel Rehnfeldt, Paraguay; Marielos Monzon,
Guatemala; Jineth Bedoya Lima and Maria Jimena Duzan, Colombia; and Blanca
Rosales Valencia, Peru. Nominations can be made here.
