AIR’s New Voices scholarships for upcoming Third Coast Festival (woot!), application deadline Sept 1

Hello budding radio people! AIR is offering a bunch of scholarships for up-and-coming radio producers who want to attend the 2014 Third Coast Conference. (Which is the best conference around IMHO.) Application deadline is Sept 1. And let me know if you plan to go to the conference – I'll be there and would love to meet up with some FC folks. Best, Mia


Dear AIRsters and friends,

We're thrilled to announce the opening of AIR's 2014 New Voices scholarship to support minority producers attending the Third Coast Conference in Chicago this fall. We expect this year's gathering to be bigger and better than ever, with hundreds of producers coming from across the country to celebrate and learn the craft of audio storymaking.

For six years running, AIR, with support from CPB and NEA, has recruited gifted producers, providing stipends and professional support to help them chart new paths into public media. This new class of recruits will join an important cohort of New Voices alumni, nearly one hundred strong, who are working across the system as indie producers, network reporters, station staff and more to expand and diversify our industry's workforce.

Are you a New Voice? Do you know someone ripe with potential for expanding their skill set and passionate about public service media?  

Check it out.  Apply here, or share the news with a colleague. 

The application is open Aug. 1 through Sept. 1, 2014. Those selected will be notified by Sept. 18, 2014. For all the details, please carefully read the AIR New Voices FAQ

Get touch if you have questions. I'm at I can't wait to hear from from you.
