Invest in the Futures of WMSF’s Students

Washington Media Scholars Foundation (WMSF) was established in 2009 with a simple mission—to make sure that students seeking careers in media could get the support they need to graduate from college and enter the fields of media and policy.  For 13 years, WMSF has supported students because of the generous donations from the country’s top media companies.
