Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) and the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) are pleased to announce a new joint student scholarship. The mission of this partnership is to assist a female undergraduate or graduate student in the United States in her studies as well as to shed a light on issues of prominence in the media.
The winning applicant will have the opportunity to produce a concept for a digital piece, essay or other creative concept addressing one of three key areas: 1) Identify the significance in today’s society of digital literacy and 21st century skills; 2) Forecast trends in new and digital media as they may affect users and providers of services, or 3) Review cable industry public policy viewpoints. The finished product, pending editorial review, will be featured in NCTA and AWMF media distribution channels, and the student will have the right to use and retain the deliverable material in her own portfolio and for any purposes she sees fit.
The deadline to apply has passed. We will be honoring the selected student by September 30th.
