Purpose: With support from Twitch Student, 1DF created a grant specifically to support women student broadcasters on Twitch who desire to work in the gaming industry (whether in-front or behind the camera). Our scholarship was created to support women including cis women, trans women, trans feminine, and those who face disparities and discrimination in correlation to misogyny and identity.
The 1,000 Dreams Fund Twitch BroadcastHER Student Scholarship 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. This grant is not intended for everyday expenses (e.g., utility bills, food costs) or costs related to medical care.
