GS Photo Fellows Program — 6/1/2015

Thanks to a generous grant from the Joy of Giving Something Foundation (JGS), Imagining America invites publicly engaged students of photography or digital media from our member institutions to apply for a tuition award of $2,000 and join a national working group of students that will result in a collaborative media project. Fellows will be invited to participate in the 2015 IA national conference, October 1-3, in Baltimore, Maryland, and will be eligible for a limited number of travel stipends to attend the conference. The goal of the IA/JGS Fellows Program is to elevate photography and digital media as a pathway for students to pursue their careers and make a difference in their communities.
