Premise of the scholarship
All too often, women have to work extra hard to gain the same respect / status as a man in a similar position, especially those in foreign countries. To this end, we at Everipedia have created a list of female reporters and journalists that we believe deserve recognition for their work. The International Women in Media Scholarship aims to bring awareness and recognition to women working tirelessly across the globe in search of the truth.

International Women in Media Scholarship
The International Women in Media Scholarship was established by Everipedia, Inc. in 2017. It aims to increase awareness of women in journalism and the media, along with the challenges they face around the world. Applicants, instead of writing an essay, will create a Wikipedia-style biography page for a woman of their choice. A sample list of women will be provided, but applicants are free to chose their own. Our scholarship offers an award of $1000 and is open to all incoming and current college students.

Scholarship Details
- $1000 award
- Deadline is July 1
- Awarded yearly

Eligibility Requirements
- Must be a senior in high school, or currently enrolled in a college / university.
- Must be fluent in English. Submissions with poor grammar will not be considered.
