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.
In addition to their flagship newsletter, they’ve now launched The GIST Sports Business Newsletter, bringing you everything you need to know about the business of women’s sports, free to your inbox 3x / week.
This newsletter is one of the few centralized places to receive updates on the business side of women’s sports. It focuses on the news (and people!) impacting the women’s sports world, and it also covers the major happenings on the business side of men’s sports (along with how those happenings will impact female athletes).
The GIST is your witty, sports-obsessed friend, perfect for anyone interested in working in sports or the business of sports, particularly women’s sports.
We’ve partnered with The GIST to create this exclusive scholarship. By applying, you’ll automatically be subscribed to The GIST’s sports biz newsletter. As a subscriber, you’ll get “the gist” of what’s going on in the sports business world in less than 5 minutes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning.
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 Sports Business every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
- Share The GIST Sports Business with your friends
While the scholarship will be awarded on May 1st, 2023, the scholarship will have rolling monthly application deadlines. Students applying within earlier application windows will have a greater chance of winning the award.
Deadline: June 1, 2022
