The U.S. Basketball Writers Association invites college students to apply to a mentoring program for the 2023-24 basketball season. Please feel free to share this information to potential candidates.

For a third season, the program will match selected students with USBWA members who will critique written work, support development of reporting skills and offer suggestions on how to approach and navigate the job market.

Applicants should be full-time undergraduate students from two-year or four-year institutions or graduate students during the Spring 2024 semester with a demonstrated interest in becoming a sports journalist.

As a reminder, the application deadline is Nov. 20 at 5 p.m. (ET).

Members, if you wish to volunteer for the program, please apply here.
