AWM Scholarships

Scholarship Program
In 1960, the Alliance for Women in Media became the first professional broadcasting organization to establish an educational foundation. Our mission is to utilize the media to create positive change. The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation supports educational programs, charitable activities, public service campaigns and scholarships to benefit the public, the media and allied fields.

 The Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, Inc. will award three scholarships totaling $12,500 in the names of Irene Runnels, a distinguished and respected Dallas broadcaster and Paula McStay, a former Fort Worth advertising executive.  These scholarships, available in early 2017, will be administered through the University Financial Aid Office and must be applied toward undergraduate or graduate tuition only.

The Irene Runnels-Paula McStay scholarship will be awarded to (1) high school senior and (2) college students attending a Texas public or private university that offers radio, television, film, public relations, advertising/communications or broadcasting as the major emphasis of study.

Applicants will be considered on the basis of educational and career goals in their major field of study, activities and honors, service to community and references.  The scholarships will be acknowledged at the Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation Award of Excellence Gala on April 13, 2017.
