We’re excited to announce the return of our BroadcastHER Academy Fellowship for Women in Gaming & Esports for Year 6!

In partnership with title sponsors HyperX and Skillshot Media and supporting partners MSI, Ghost Gaming, and Hitmarker, we are offering five Fellows a game-changing career opportunity for women interested in pursuing careers in esports and gaming — both in front of and behind the camera. 

Have you been dreaming about a career transition into gaming and esports but don’t know where to start? Are you currently in school and want to round out your training with an experiential learning opportunity with a cohort who is as passionate about the industry as you are? No matter what your background is, if you dream of a career in gaming and esports, this program is for you!

To apply, we invite interested applicants to take our BroadcastHER Academy Challenge and share how this program is going to help you level-up and reach your inspiring careers goals and dreams in gaming and esports! 

So what’s in store for our Fellows this year? Our 2024 BroadcastHER Academy Fellows will receive the following prize package, including:

  • A $500 microgrant from 1DF for their career pursuits in gaming
  • Career coaching session with one assigned mentor from a partner
  • An all-expense paid trip to Games Week Georgia for a life-changing, behind-the-scenes experience with the 1,000 Dreams Fund and Skillshot Media team
  • Laptop provided by supporting partner MSI to bridge access to critical hardware
  • Resume reviews by supporting partner Hitmarker
  • Additional “pop-up” event opportunities with 1DF partners throughout the year
  • And so much more!

It’s just as amazing as it sounds! Want to see how this Fellowship program changes lives? Check out this trip that the Fellows took last year.
