    The Association for Women in Sports Media is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2012 scholarship/internship program. The program is open to female undergraduate and graduate students as well as 2012 graduates that are interested in pursuing a career in sports media.

    AWSM is proud of have placed more than 100 young women in paid internships at employers such as Sports Illustrated, ESPN, MLB.com and a variety of the nation's top daily newspapers. AWSM also provides internship opportunities for students interested in careers in sports media relations.

    We hope to be able to place as many as a dozen deserving applicants into internships for the summer of 2012. The top applicant in each of the writing, broadcast, editing and media relations categories will receive a $1,000 scholarship and a paid trip to the 2012 convention in Chicago. All other students selected for an AWSM internship will receive a $500 scholarship.

    Applications for the summer of 2012 program must be submitted through our online application system. The application deadline is Monday, Oct. 31, 2011. Winners will be notified by mid-December.

    Interested students can apply through our online system by visiting:

    - Applicants must be full-time female students seeking an undergraduate or graduate degree during the 2011-12 academic year.
    - Previous winners are not eligible.
    - Membership in AWSM is not required. However, applicants can join AWSM for just $15 in addition to their $20 application fee.

    Selection process:
    - AWSM board members and appropriate media professionals will serve as judges and select internship finalists.
    - Applicants may be contacted by phone for an interview.
    - All intern placements are final decisions, made jointly by AWSM and the employer.
    - Interns are expected to serve a full term with the employer.
    - Interns will receive half of their scholarship money at the start of the internship and the remaining half upon completion of the internship.
