Celebrate Women’s History Month with 1,000 Dreams Fund’s BroadcastHER Initiative — and help us make even MORE dreams come true for women in content creation, gaming & esports!

This month, we are doing ALL the things to celebrate women in content creation, gaming and esports!

All through March, 1,000 Dreams Fund will be hosting fundraisers, tournaments, funding programs, and our very own esports fellowship.

Check out our highlights, listed below, and our full Calendar of Events to learn more about each event we’re hosting and how YOU can get involved!

Our FIFTH annual Streams For Dreams (#StreamsForDreams) fundraiser, celebrating Women’s History Month is here!

1DF continues its commitment to elevating women in the digital broadcasting and gaming space with our annual Streams For Dreams fundraisers, powered by Twitch. You can read about our Year 5 partnership with Twitch on the Twitch blog.

For the quick scoop: This is where we team up with streamers and content creators — including those on YouTube and Facebook — to raise funds for our BroadcastHER Grant, which provides financial support to up-and-coming women content creators! 

Streams For Dreams takes place all of March, during Women’s History Month, and will extend through April 30, 2022.

Our Spring 2022 BroadcastHER Grant applications are open! 

The 1DF-BroadcastHER Grant provides financial assistance to eligible women to help with expenses such as travel to gaming conventions, educational conferences, hardware upgrades, and instructional programs related to creative or artistic pursuits.

For the FIRST TIME EVER, our BroadcastHER Grant will be open to creators from ALL platforms including YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, and more.

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:

  • $1,000 grant from 1DF for their career pursuits in gaming
  • 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!)
  • 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’s because IT IS! 

New to the program this year, BroadcastHER Academy Fellows will have access to a special mentorship panel opportunity with Aerial Powers, HyperX Brand Ambassador and a professional basketball player for the Minnesota Lynx as part of the Women’s National Basketball Association, previously playing for Michigan State University in college. 

Aerial has accelerated her love for gaming and content creation through her Twitch streams, YouTube Channel, and position as Chair of Diversity & Inclusion at Team Liquid.

We think you’ll agree that Women’s History Month 2022 is going to be awesome. Let’s make it a great month together!
