Association for Women in Sports Media
** The Association for Women in Sports Media, is a wonderful non-profit organization founded as a support network and advocacy group for women in sports media. They work to promote and increase diversity in sports media through their summer internship/scholarship program, which has placed more than 145 women in paid internships since 1990. It provides direction, networking opportunities and a sense of community among women.
They have eight internships that go along with eight scholarships available for summer 2017: three newspaper/magazine/digital, one broadcast reporting, two broadcast production and two public relations. The winners also receive a $1,000 scholarship and complimentary registration and lodging at AWSM’s annual convention in Austin from May 7-10, 2017.
How to apply:
The application period is open through Oct. 31. There is no fee for AWSM members to apply, and a $40 application fee for non-members. A student membership to AWSM is $25, which waives the internship/scholarship application fee.
