IWMF Grant for Women in Digital Media

The International Women’s Media Foundation is awarding three grants of $20,000 each to female journalists “who aspire to be new media entrepreneurs” in the “global digital media frontier,” according to the IWMF website.

The grants will go to three U.S.-based women who propose the best idea for a new business venture that has not yet launched. The best project proposals will demonstrate that the ideas will be financially sustainable, and will also “further the role of women in the media.” In addition to the grant money, the winners will receive technical assistance and business management training to help turn their ideas into reality.

The deadline to apply is November 30, and more information can be found here. Get to it, ladies!
