The Western Region of the Alliance for Community Media (ACM) is offering four scholarships for a Public, Education, or Government (PEG) access producer, volunteer, board member, “friend of access” or access staff person to attend the October 18-20, 2012 Alliance for Community Media Western Region conference in Sacramento, California (www.acmwest.org). The funds are to offset conference costs and encourage local and/or regional leadership, enhance and expand your experience, widen the diversity of participants in the access community, improve production skills and expand your knowledge of PEG access. The grants are provided by the Western Region of the ACM. The Region will pay for four (4) conference registrations ($150 each in value) and up to four (4) scholarships of $250 cash to help with cost of lodging and transportation. The four selected individuals awarded funds must attend the conference, or repay the grant to The ACM Western Region.

Who is Eligible?

Assistance is limited to those current members in good standing of the Alliance for Community Media or a person affiliated with an organizational member of ACM, who reside in the six Western States (Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico). If you are not an individual ACM member, you must be an active “friend of the organization,” volunteer, producer, board or staff member representative of an organizational member of the ACM to apply. Please include a letter from the ACM member organization in support of your application. Because funding is limited to only four persons, full funding for all requests will not be possible. Out-of-pocket expenses from anywhere in the Western Region will probably be more than $250. Please do not apply if additional costs not covered through the scholarship will prevent you from attending this conference.
