If you're a full time college photojournalism student, or are returning to college to finish a photojournalism degree, it's not too early to start apply for National Press Photographer Foundation scholarship awards. The deadline for all applications is March 1 each year.
NPPF scholarship awards are given to encourage those who have talent and dedication to photojournalism and who need financial help to continue their studies. One scholarship is reserved exclusively for a photojournalist pursuing an advanced degree.
There are multiple annual scholarships available for still and television photojournalists and they are all administered by the NPPF, a foundation associated with the NPPA. For complete rules and information, portfolio, and application details, see www.nppa.org/professional_development/students/scholarships/.
