Northern Short Course Scholarships
1) As is our custom for many years, the Northern Short Course offers a number of scholarships (in the form of tuition waivers) for NPPA members who are out of work or in genuine financial need. Apply in writing to the Registration Chair explaining your circumstances.
2) At the 2002 NSC, the NSC Board voted to offer registration fee waivers to full time professionals in honor of the ultimate sacrifice of two veteran photojournalists who died covering the World Trade Center attacks on September 11th. Glen Pettit was a New York City Police Officer assigned to the Video Production unit. Pettit was also a freelance videographer who worked for News 12 on Long Island and the New York Times. Bill Biggart was a still photographer and member of IMPACT VISUALS. He had survived covering the Middle East, beginning with the Intifada in 1987, and many trips to Israel. His final World Trade Center work appeared in a five page spread in Newsweek. Both still and TV journalists are eligible for these awards. To apply, send a letter of interest to the Registration Chair Natalie Nigito at firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate a still or TV specialty and include a copy of your credentials
