Offer: Call for Applicants, Women Entrepreneurs in the Digital News Frontier, $20,000 Grants!

Dear PulseWire Community Members,

Are you a US-based woman entrepreneur who is interested in starting her own digital media enterprise? Then keep reading!

The Women Entrepreneurs in the Digital News Frontier grant program is designed to diversify the emerging digital news media landscape by expanding the voice and role of women entrepreneurs. In addition to seed funding, grantees will receive pro-bono coaching, and will participate in a monthly call series featuring leading entrepreneurs and digital news media experts.

The IWMF will award three $20,000 grants to women journalists who aspire to be digital news media entrepreneurs. This initiative is made possible with generous support from the Ford Foundation.

Applicants must be U.S.-based women journalists (full-time, part-time or freelance women news media professionals are eligible).

Applicants must propose a new digital news media enterprise that has not yet launched - and that will not launch before the IWMF announces the winners in April, 2012 - that uses digital media in innovative ways to deliver the news.

Applicants must include a business plan summary that demonstrates sustainability after initial funding has ended.

Applicants must demonstrate how their project advances women in the field of news media.

Personal blogs and documentary projects will not be considered.

For further information and to fill out an application, please go to

Kind regards,
