AIR's New Voices scholarships were established 3 years ago with
funding from CPB and NEA to support professional development for
minority producers working independently or at a public media
stations. Our goal is to broaden the pipeline for a new generation of
diverse talent – people who show potential to help make public media
more reflective of the American public. Many of our New Voices alumni
have found ripe opportunities to further develop their talents, expand
their professional relationships and understanding of the field, and
strengthen their voice.

emerging and mid-career producers to take advantage of this
opportunity.  You may be working primarily with audio or sound, or you
