The Center on Conflict and Development Student Media Grant
I just thought I would forward on some quick information regarding The Center on Conflict and Development’s Student Media Grant, in case you have any Universities affiliated with the APLU that would be interested in informing their students about this opportunity.
This $5000 photojournalism grant is open to current students worldwide who are passionate about capturing an issue facing conflict-affected areas of the world through stunning photography. Students wishing to chronicle a conflict-related issue in the United States (or in their home countries) are also, of course, encouraged to apply; though all of our past winners have chosen to focus on issues overseas.
How it works: Students propose an idea based on a conflict-related issue they would like to photograph, then travel to the pertinent country or area to conduct a photoexpedition, sending photos to ConDev throughout their trip so we can help highlight their work. Upon their return, the students edit and publish their photos and stories. ConDev provides the funds, but the students are entirely responsible for planning the trip, and for producing and promoting their own photos and stories. The competition is open to current undergraduate and graduate students as well as PhDs. Students graduating in May 2017 are also eligible. The grant is funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation Chair on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M University.
I have attached the application instructions (also available on our website), along with brief summaries of recent Student Media Grant winners. If you have any questions, please let me know!
