The ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA FOUNDATION has named CUNY HUNTER COLLEGE student ALLYSON CONYERS as the recipient of THE LOREEN ARBUS FOCUS ON DISABILITY SCHOLARSHIP. THE ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA FOUNDATION engaged in a partnership with THE LOREEN ARBUS FOUNDATION to focus on the needs, achievements, contributions and stories of citizens with disabilities. In 2009, AWM created THE LOREEN ARBUS FOCUS ON DISABILITY SCHOLARSHIP to be given to aspiring student television and filmmakers.
"We are delighted to recognize Ms. CONYERS for her realistic and inspiring portrayal of an individual with disabilities who contributes to her community," said AWM Foundation Chair VALERIE BLACKBURN. "Our partnership with the LOREEN ARBUS FOUNDATION allows us to support tomorrow's media professionals, who create and deliver important messages that resonate on many levels."
WILSON will receive her bachelor's degree in media studies later this SPRING.
