We understand this is an unusual time and some students are having trouble obtaining documents from their schools, so we have changed the scholarship requirements to make it easier for you to apply for the NAHJ/Getty Images Inclusion Scholarship.
The Unofficial School Transcript and Proof of Enrollment are no longer required to submit an application, but you will need to produce them in order to receive the award in the fall. Now, you only need to submit one Letter of Recommendation.
The Work Samples, Resume and Essay requirements remain as listed below.
NAHJ and Getty Images are pleased to announce a new collaboration to award $10,000 to a university student focused on photojournalism. The Getty Images Inclusion Scholarship reinforces our organizations’ commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion within the editorial photography industry and journalism more broadly.
The Getty Images Inclusion Scholarship is open to undergraduate and graduate students attending accredited colleges and universities in the United States with at least one year of school remaining, beginning in the fall of 2020. The recipient will receive a one-year student membership to NAHJ and will also be invited to attend the NABJ/NAHJ 2020 Conference and Career Fair from July 8-12 in Washington D.C., receiving a $1,000 stipend to cover travel and other costs of attendance. The scholarship funds can be used for tuition or camera equipment during the 2020 – 2021 school year.
Candidates will be judged on the strength of their photographic portfolios, academic performance and a demonstrated commitment to the field of visual journalism.
