Who Can Apply: The GIST is a female-founded and led sports media brand that’s leveling the playing field in sports.
Launched in 2018 by three college friends — Jacie deHoop, Ellen Hyslop, and Roslyn McLarty — The GIST is all about changing the game in the male-dominated sports industry where less than 14% of journalists are women and less than 4% of coverage is on female athletes.
Three years later, their all-women, 20-person team works day in and day out to change those stats, providing equal coverage of men’s and women’s sports.
Think of them as your witty, sports-obsessed best friend. They’re a multimedia destination that’s made by and for sports fans who don’t fit (or maybe don’t want to fit) the traditional avid sports fan mold.
We’ve partnered with The Gist to create this exclusive scholarship. By applying, you’ll automatically be subscribed to The GIST. As a subscriber, you’ll get “the gist” of what’s going on in the sports world in less than 5 minutes every Monday, Thursday, and Sunday morning.
As one of the many no-essay scholarship opportunities on Bold.org, the scholarship will be awarded to applicants who get the most out of The GIST. You will be a strong applicant if you:
- Read The GIST every Monday, Thursday, and Sunday
- Share The GIST with your friends
Deadline: September 1, 2023
