Apply for the Student Media Grants Program and win funding of up to $5,000 for research and international travel.
The Student Media Grants Program is an annual photojournalism grant awarded to students interested in using innovative methods to research and chronicle issues facing fragile and conflict-affected areas.
Students are invited to create proposals describing their international travel, research idea, and photographic subjects.
They should choose an international development area that reflects issues of food security, health, education, land tenure, poverty, etc. as the basis for the proposal. Students do not have to be professionals or experienced photographers to apply!
The deadline for submitting applications for the Student Media Grants Program is October 10th, 2014.
The Student Media Grants Program is administered by the Center on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M University through a grant funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.
