    Photojournalism Scholarship 
    • Five (5) Digital SLR Cameras will be awarded to five (5) high school students. (High school applicants should only submit still photographs. The video awards are for college and graduate students only.)
    • Five (5) $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to five (5) college or technical school students, payable to their school. Four awards will be for video work while one will be for still photography.  One suggestion, for subject matter, is the current crisis our world is facing: COVID-19. All of our lives have been changed by the Coronavirus. Much like 9/11 changed the lives of your parents, this event will change your world forever. You can show, through images or video, how COVID-19 has affected life in your school, your home, and your community. (In terms of still photography, you may submit individual images that stand alone or a series of photos.) Topics might include empty shelves in stores and empty classrooms, or health care workers bravely battling this virus. Stories might also focus on how you and your family are dealing with this pandemic – playing games, making meals together, and, of course, navigating the new educational system of distance learning. We urge you to go out and record the history that is being made all around you (and be sure to identify your photos by location and date).  
    • Again, we are looking for photojournalism. We are asking you to do a lot with this application – write an essay and send us your transcript and recommendations – so if you are submitting still photos, please don’t ruin your chances of being considered by entering images of flowers, glamour shots or kittens – no matter how adorable they may be.
