Offer: Call for Applications: New Media Women Entrepreneurs Fund

J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism and the McCormick Foundation are seeking to fund four women-led projects that will rock the world of journalism.

We will fund U.S.-based individuals who have original ideas to create new Web sites, mobile news services or other entrepreneurial initiatives that offer interactive opportunities to engage, inspire and improve news and information in a geographic community or a community of interest.

What is your juicy idea? What’s been stirring in your mind? What work do you feel compelled to do? How can you improve or redefine journalism? What new project would give people the information they need to make decisions or help make the world a better place? Whose voice isn’t being heard?

The McCormick New Media Women Entrepreneurs program will give $14,000 in funding to women who have the vision, skills and experience to launch a new venture. Awardees will receive an initial $12,000 in the first year. If they are able to raise $2,000 through their own efforts, they will receive an additional $2,000 for their projects in the second year.

This match is designed to encourage women to consider how their ventures can become sustainable. Matching dollars will be distributed after awardees submit documentation. This money can be used for training or technical support.

Projects that are in early beta (launched since Jan. 27, 2011) may apply.

There is a $25.00 fee to apply. Applicants may submit payment via Eventbrite.
