About the Fellowship

Two Fellows will receive complimentary pro-level Women In Media memberships for two years (including support to develop a WiM CrewList profile); complimentary admittance to all applicable programs, events and training opportunities offered by WiM during the Fellowship; one-on-one coaching from industry mentors; and the opportunity to receive a paid, entry-level internship with one of WiM’s industry partners.

The fellowship is aimed at underserved communities who might not have the network, guidance, or the means to enter the entertainment industry.
