1,000 Dreams Fund’s ‘BroadcastHER Academy’ Gaming Fellowship for Women is NOW Accepting Applications for 2022 Class!

We are extremely excited to launch our BroadcastHER Academy for the FOURTH year in partnership with Allied Esports and HyperX!


Each year, 1DF selects 10 women who aspire to have careers in esports and gaming — either in front of or behind the camera!

Our BroadcastHER Academy Fellows receive a game-changing prize package, including:

  • A $1,000 grant from 1DF for their career pursuits in gaming
  • An all-expense paid trip out to the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas for a life-changing, behind-the-scenes experience with the Allied Esports team (Check out the recap of our 2021 trips here and here!)
  • A career coaching session with one assigned mentor from a partner
  • Additional “pop-up” event opportunities,  as available, with 1DF partners throughout the year

If it sounds amazing, it is because IT IS!


To top it off, there are two additional incredible opportunities for our 2022 Fellows:

  • BroadcastHER Academy Fellows will have access to a special mentorship panel opportunity with Aerial Powers, a HyperX Brand Ambassador and professional basketball player for the Minnesota Lynx as part of the Women’s National Basketball Association, previously playing for Michigan State University in college. 
  • Also for the FIRST time, we will be hosting a tournament during our visit at the HyperX Arena that includes some of our BroadcastHER Academy Fellows as well as other members of the gaming and esports community!

Don’t sleep on this opportunity! Click HERE to apply and share your commitment to gaming/esports as a career. We are so eager to meet inspiring, emerging talent in this industry!

Key Dates:

  • Challenge Launch: Now!
  • Challenge Closes: March 30, 2022
  • BroadcastHER Academy Fellows will be announced each week, over the course of the five-week challenge on our 1,000 Dreams Fund blog and social media channels (i.e., Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you know the ones!). All 10 Fellows will be named by April 1, 2022.

Qualified applicants must be 18 years of age or older to apply and be based in the U.S.
