Please note: the application period for AWSM’s 2017 Internship/Scholarship program closed Oct. 31.
Since 1990, AWSM has placed more than 140 female college students interested in sports media careers in paid summer internships working in broadcast production, broadcast reporting, print/digital reporting, magazine writing and public relations. All interns receive a $1,000 scholarship and complimentary registration and lodging at AWSM’s annual convention.
There are eight slots for the 2017 application.
Interns will have the opportunity to work at places such as ESPN, CNN, the Golf Channel, USA Softball, PRO Sports Communications, USA TODAY Sports, Sports Illustrated and MLB.com. Internship hosts are subject to change each year.
AWSM would like to thank the following individuals and organizations for their ongoing support of the program: Christine Brennan, Jim Jenks, Kristin Huckshorn, Martin Doerfler, Michelle
Kaufman, Myra MacPherson, the Sports Journalism Institute and the Associated Press Sports Editors.
The application process for the 2017 AWSM internship/scholarship program is open through Oct. 31. There is no fee for AWSM members to apply, and a $40 application fee for non-members. Student-membership to AWSM is $25, which waives the internship/scholarship application fee.
Winners should be notified in late December.
