The Association for Women in Sports Media (AWSM) is accepting applications for their 2019 summer internship/scholarship program. AWSM is a non-profit organization founded as a support network and advocacy group for women in sports. They work to promote and increase diversity in sports media. One of their hallmark programs is AWSM Scholars, which has placed nearly 200 young women in paid internships since 1990.
This year, they have up to nine internships available for female college students who have completed at least one year of school. All of these internships are supplemented by $1,000 scholarships. The paid internships are in four areas: sportswriting, broadcast production, media relations and social media. The media relations position will be working with a sports team or organization.
Last summer AWSM internship winners worked at ESPN, USA Today, Sports Illustrated, MLB.com and USA Softball, among other organizations. They’re putting together a similarly stellar lineup for 2019.
The application deadline is Oct. 15. It costs $40 for non-members and it’s free for members. An annual membership is just $25 for students.
