The latest round of 1,000 Dreams Fund's BroadcastHER initiative is looking for the next generation of women in esports to invest in.
The BroadcastHER Academy Challenge is a fellowship program to find talented young women aiming for a career in all levels of esports. Partnered with Allied Esports and HyperX, the challenge will choose 10 fellows to receive a $1000 microgrant to further education, as well as all-expenses paid trip to shadow the Allied Esports team at the HyperX Arena in Las Vegas, learning from all the behind-the-scenes action at all levels of competition.
Challengers need only be US legal residents, female or identifying as female, over 18 and be able to explain their esports dream. It doesn't have to just be a dream of competing either, as the 1,000 Dreams Fund is interested in hearing from collegiate women interested in becoming developers, tournament organizers or other careers in gaming as well. If that sounds like you then you can apply at the site.
Previous BroadcastHER Academy fellows have included women like Devin S, aka DevineGoddessXO on Twitch, who wanted to amplify the voices of plus-sized women of color in the gaming community. However other women such as Obe_won, aka Juvylen Obe L., have received help in pursuing a full-time professional CS:GO career.
If you have a dream that you want to achieve but don't know where to find help for it, take a look at other initiatives supported by the 1,000 Dreams Fund as well.
