NPPF president Mike Smith said the funds are being made available through the Foundation, the National Press Photographers Association, and a grant from the Author’s Coalition of America.
“If you are a photojournalist with three years experience and your work has been published in newspapers, magazines or through agencies, and if you have returned to school in the past year, you are eligible to apply,” Smith said.
“These scholarships are particularly important now when so many photographers have been forced to learn new skills just to keep their jobs, much less find a new one. We are fortunate to have some money to support photographers who are trying to keep up with the head-spinning changes in their industry.”
Six grants of $4,000 each, called the NPPF-NPPA Career Expansion Scholarships, will be awarded this year.
The application deadline is November 15, 2011. Applicants must include a resume, completed application forms (which can be downloaded at http://nppf.org ) and recommendation letters from their instructors.
Send your application materials to: Tom Hardin, NPPF vice president, 1622 Forest Hill Drive, Louisville, KY, 40205. Hardin can be contacted by eMail to answer questions about applying, and his eMail address is email@example.com.

Momenta Workshops (www.momentaworkshops.com) is teaching another Uganda workshop this coming Spring in Northern Uganda! It’s going to be really exciting since we’re getting out of the big city of Kampala and going to the cities of Lira and Gulu, which were major epicenters of the war but are now peaceful located in the Northern areas of rebuilding and reconciliation.
Students will be working directly with NGOs who are helping repair the damages of 22 years of civil war. We’re teaching audio and multimedia packaging as well as nonprofit documentary skills. It’s a really great workshop for those of you who want to do more with your photography and learn how to work with NGOs!
Special scholarship opportunities for a percentage off the workshop fees are being offered for a select group of qualified applicants. If you’re interested, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to visit the Project Uganda Workshop webpage at http://momentaworkshops.com/uganda09.php or read about it here:
Project Uganda: Photography as a Force of Change
Lira & Gulu, Uganda
Level Three Advanced:Working with Non-Profits
Classroom: 15 Students/3 Instructors/Digital Only
Dates: March 1 – March 15, 2009
* Work one-on-one with instructors to develop a logistical and photographic plan to document a working NGO in an area of need.
* Gain rare access to these projects and forge relationships to last into the future. Benefit NGOs in their need to publicize and project their activities to new audiences.
* Panel discussions with local journalists on relevant topics related to working in the region and local issues.
* Explore, discuss, and examine the different types of outreach and aid programs in a given region. Relate this, with the benefit of mentors, to your own personal mission and develop a more broad approach to your own work.
* Students hone their ability to craft a rich and moving visual narrative about an important topic.
So, you want to do more with photography than simply show friends and family about your world travels? Perhaps you’ve even thought about working either alongside or in the employ of an NGO to assist them in their mission and gain access to their projects. Maybe you’ve begun to work as a professional or citizen journalist and want to take that mission to the next level, to a region and country out of the comfort zone.
If any of these things sounds familiar, then Project Uganda will be your ideal workshop. The centerpiece of your experience will be working with directly with one of our NGO partner’s in a real world, extended documentary environment. Workshop attendees will be assigned with an NGO that has a mission complementary to the photographer’s own goals for their work. Each student then covers the daily activities of the organization. Your visual product will be provided to the organization as a thank you for allowing access to their programs and will be used to further the cause of NGO’s in areas such as HIV/AIDS outreach, vocational training, orphanages and general healthcare.
Truth be told, Uganda will be so very close to the real thing, many students will come back with work that will be published. In addition, they will have the benefit of logistical support, editing, instruction, and personal mentoring during this process of creation. Finally, they will have honed their own craft while benefiting exactly the type of groups that need visual help the most. Every photo on this project will go towards documenting the work NGO’s do in the region, and the people who work so hard to make a difference.
Project Uganda allows for freedom in scheduling based on the photographer’s and NGOs’ vision. Upon arrival in Uganda, each student will meet with the instructors on a one-on-one basis to discuss their photography, their assigned NGOs and develop a strategy based on the student’s goals for the workshop. We want this workshop to be tailored to each student on a personal level so that you leave with the best experience possible.
