The International Women's Media Foundation will award three $20,000 grants to entrepreneurial women journalists proposing to use digital media in innovative ways to deliver the news. In addition to seed funding, the program provides coaching from leading entrepreneurs and digital news media experts.

A successful applicant will pitch an innovative digital news media enterprise with a well conceived plan for sustainability after initial funding has ended. She will clearly demonstrate how the enterprise delivers news in new ways, and she will outline tangible benchmarks for her success as a digital news media entrepreneur.

Applicants can be full-time, part-time or freelance women news media professionals based in the U.S. Funding is available for startups only. Personal blogs and one-time documentary projects will not be considered.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, January 25, 2013. Late applications will not be considered. Grant winners will be selected by an advisory committee comprised of digital news media experts and entrepreneurs. They will be announced in March 2013.

The Women Entrepreneurs in the Digital News Frontier grant program is made possible with generous support from the Ford Foundation.
