AIR is still talking applications for their 2016 New Voices Scholarship.
Learn more and find the application here. The deadline to apply is next Monday, August 29th at 5 p.m.
Scholars will receive financial support to attend this year's Third Coast Conference in Chicago, November 11th – 13th. This scholarship is an incredible opportunity to find both peers and mentors, meeting storytellers who are just entering the field and those who are well-established.
Who this scholarship is ideal for: All producers and program makers who self-identify as part of a minority group. The focus of Third Coast is radio/audio, but the scholarship welcomes applicants from the full range of disciplines. New talent that contributes fresh craft, diversity or perspective to news and media. Someone who can one day (or already does) help programs and stations connect with more ears, homes, and corners of America.
