Each year, AIR identifies and cultivates a diverse roster of early-career talent to help programs, stations, and networks connect with more ears, homes, and corners of America.
AIR’s New Voices scholarships are available for those who can contribute fresh craft, diversity or perspective to the network and media. The scholarship brings new talent to industry gatherings where they will find a peer support network, opportunities to meet industry leaders, and chances to share their interests, concerns and work.
The scholarship provides individual stipends ranging from $500 to $1,500. New Voices scholars will receive coaching, professional development support, and structured networking with leaders in the industry, and will join the robust New Voices alumni network of more than 160 journalists with diverse backgrounds, craft and experience.
The 2015 New Voices scholars included a visual documentarian from Appalachia; a producer, DJ, blogger and fashion archivist from Chicago; a New Mexico-based engineer for Native America Calling; and the founder of the Transgender Oral History Project. Now it’s time to discover a new class of dynamic makers ready to engage with public media.
