The IWMF seeks qualified experts to review applications for our portfolio of programs. We receive thousands of applications each year for our unique funding opportunities for women reporters around the world; in 2017 we plan to award more than $300,000 in small grants in addition to fellowships in East Africa and Latin America.

You can support the IWMF’s mission by volunteering to help us select potential fellows and grantees with just a few hours each month. All you need is an Internet connection and a passion for supporting the next generation of media leaders. 

Ideal reviewers are journalists, academics, and/or professionals with an interest in supporting gender equity in the news media. Reviewers will be responsible for evaluating applications based on set guidelines and will review batches of approximately 30 applications per cycle on a rolling basis throughout the year. We are seeking reviewers for the IWMF’s programs including the Howard G. Buffett Fund for Women Journalists, the Reporting Grants for Women's Stories, the African Great Lakes Reporting Initiative and the Latin America Reporting Initiative, Adelante.
