Active Interest Media, a leading publisher of recreational boating magazines and websites — including Trade Only Today, Anglers Journal, Outboard, Passagemaker, Power & Motoryacht, Sail, Soundings and Yachts International — has stepped up to the plate as the title sponsor of the annual Boating Writers International college scholarship fund.
The $3,000 BWI Active Interest Media Boating Journalist Scholarship will be awarded to undergraduate college students who demonstrate a passion for the field of boating media and showcase a clear career goal in the areas of writing, photography, broadcasting, film or art.
“Sponsoring the scholarship fits within our vision of attracting talented college graduates to enter the boating media as their profession,” AIM Marine Group president Gary DeSanctis told Trade Only Today. “We need a new crop to come up behind us that can meet the demands of the changing media landscape.”
Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate college or university program and submit an application by January 15, 2021.
Winners will be announced at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
