The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), a global network designed to support and strengthen the role of women in the media, is offering a three grants valued at $20,000 each for women armed with a pen (or keyboard) and their ideas. The IWMF believes, as do I, that giving women a voice and making them a vibrant force in the media, is a fundamental part of protecting and extending freedom of the press. The foundations looks to accomplish this objective by building and maintaining an active network of peers, cultivating leaders in the communications space, and spearheading progress for women both in the newsroom and beyond its walls. Successful grant proposals will be characterized by both their innovation and their sustainability. The application deadline is Tuesday, November 30th.
