Women and men participating in the IWMF’s programs become highly skilled investigative journalists. They earn promotions and awards as a result of the reporting skills acquired through our training and bring positive change to their newsrooms. IWMF reporting fellows become specialists in their newsrooms through exposure to a wide variety of experts. They produce high-quality, in-depth reporting on issues or global importance from HIV/AIDS to agriculture and development to environmental issues all through a gendered perspective.
“It is rare for a journalist to have the opportunities and financial support that the IWMF Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship offers. The fellowship helped me grow as a journalist because it gave me time to slow down and experiment with different areas within journalism, enabling me to really hone in on what it is that I most liked to do in journalism and where I had the most to offer.”
– Catherine Elton, 2005/06 IWMF Elizabeth Neuffer Fellow
