Read about these 2021 Scholarship Winners.

Twelve student photojournalists were named National Press Photographers Foundation scholarship winners in a year that drew a record number of entries. This diverse group, from all corners of the USA, represents the future of visual journalism. Each received a $2,000 check.

Sony and Fujifilm provide scholarship funds and cameras to recipients.  Saramonic, Litra, and ThinkTank supply “image-gathering kits,” including lighting equipment, microphones, and photo equipment bags.

Students who submitted a portfolio and did not receive a scholarship will receive a $100 check.  NPPF hopes this token of appreciation will help during a tough Covid year.

NPPF, a 501c3 organization dedicated to advancing photojournalism, proudly supports students on their path to becoming visual communicators. The scholarship program provides financial support, news gathering equipment and connects students to the photojournalism community.
