The Bob Lynn Grant
A $4,000 grant will be offered for ten years beginning in 2020. Professional and student photojournalists may apply for the grant to aid in creating significant projects that make a difference.
“Our profession has a long history of helping to make a difference,” said Bob Lynn.
2021 Grant Applications will open in February.
Alan Hagman Grant
Beginning in 2020, a $5,000 grant will be offered annually to a photojournalist to facilitate a project on topics ranging from human rights to environmental issues. The grant will support work on important stories that might otherwise go untold.
The grant is open to photojournalists and photojournalism students who are U.S. residents.
The Hagman grant is named for the late Los Angeles Times photo editor who served as a mentor and championed the work of photojournalists throughout his career.
The 2021 application date will be available soon.
Michel du Cille Fellowship
The National Press Photographers Foundation (NPPF) is pleased to provide a $15,000 annual fellowship to honor the memory of Michel du Cille, a dedicated photojournalist who died while covering the Ebola crisis in Liberia. Our goal is to encourage photojournalists to cover topics of great importance in today’s changing world.
Michel’s photographs touched audiences in ways words alone never reach. They crossed boundaries of every kind and connected us to deeper truths.
The 2021 application will be announced soon.
