The application process will be open year round for senior industry professionals and TV drama companies to nominate, and financially support, women candidates who they consider would benefit from advancing their skills and connections through experiencing the best practices presented by the US.
The Exchange will also be open year round for direct applications from women writers currently working in the industry.
