Note: By popular demand, the deadline has been extended to Tuesday, May 8. Hey, public media newbies! We want to see you in Philadelphia this summer. Have you been working in public media for less than three years? Do you want a chance to learn from some of the the best reporters, editors, and digital producers around AND spend time in the city of brotherly love? Well, you're in luck. PRNDI is offering two conference scholarships for early career professionals.
Each scholarship covers conference registration and $500 toward hotel and travel.
Submitting your application is as easy as filing a :45 newscast spot, literally. Just write, voice, and file a :45 spot explaining why you can't attend without the scholarship, why you should be selected and what you hope to learn at the 2018 PRNDI conference. Email your script and an MP3 of your spot to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 pm CST on Friday, May 4. Women and people of color are especially encouraged to apply.
