DURHAM, NC (June 6, 2014) – The National Press Photographers Foundation has extended the deadline until June 24, 2014, to apply for five NPPF–NPPA Career Expansion Scholarships, Foundation president Tom Hardin said today.

Each winner of a NPPF–NPPA Career Expansion Scholarship will received a $5,000 stipend to support his or her education expenses.

This is the third year the scholarships will be awarded. Funding is supported by a grant from the Author's Coalition of America. The grant supports photojournalists who have had at least three years experience and who have returned to school to enhance their skills or to move in a new direction using their background in photojournalism.

The new deadline to apply is June 24, 2014. The National Press Photographers Foundation will award the scholarships soon afterwards.  See the Foundation’s Web site at http://nppf.org to download the application forms and entry rules.

Each entry includes an application form and two faculty recommendations that must be sent separately from the application form.
