The Association for Women in Sports Media is pleased to announce the opening of our 2016 summer internship/scholarship program.
Starting Sept. 1, college students may visit the online application to begin applying for newspaper/online, magazine, broadcast, broadcast production and PR internships. The application process will close on Oct. 31.
Since 1990, AWSM has placed more than 140 female college students interested in sports media in paid summer internships. All interns receive a $1,000 scholarship and complimentary registration and lodging at AWSM’s annual convention, scheduled for July 28-31 in Miami.
AWSM is excited to welcome first-time hosts USA TODAY Sports and the Sporting News to our group of employers for 2016. ESPN, CNN, MLB.com and Pro Sports Communications return as host employers for 2016.
We’d also like to announce a new scholarship that will be offered this year, thanks to AWSM board member and an Executive Producer at MLB Advanced Media Jim Jenks, who has graciously created the Joyce-Jenks Family Scholarship.
AWSM would like to thank the following individuals and organizations for their ongoing support of the program: Christine Brennan, Kristin Huckshorn, Martin Doerfler, Michelle Kaufman, Myra MacPherson, Associated Press Sports Editors and Sports Journalism Institute.
