2016 Funding for IAWRT scholarships & activities

The IAWRT is offering financial support to members undertaking professional development studies, or media leadership and management skills training in 2016. IAWRT scholarships are available to members of more than two years standing, who are from the global south. 

The area of study should benefit the activities of IAWRT International or the local IAWRT Chapter and women in media. Recipients of IAWRT support must report on their activities during the scholarship and upon completion of the course. The Final deadline for applications is April 30th.

IAWRT Chapters or individual long-standing members in non-northern countries may also now put in proposals for chapter or local activities. Proposals can apply for any kind of activity related to gender and media. However, the International Board will prioritize activities that will reach out to as many members as possible or to a wider audience. For example:

 Follow-ups of gender mainstreaming, i.e.. workshops on strategizising the implementation of gender mainstreaming in national broadcasters or workshops on the  underrepresentation of women in the media.
 Workshop on media and women’s reproductive rights, promoting the IAWRT long documentary “Representing her”.
 Hate speech - tackling online harassment.

Deadline for proposals is set to April 30th 2016. The proposal template is to be filled out and sent together with a detailed budget in US dollars to IAWRT Secretariat (secretariat@iawrt.org).
