About the program
The NANPA Summit College Photography Scholarship Program is an opportunity for 12 college students (undergraduate or graduate) to participate in a field-based storytelling program that mixes nature photography, videography and marketing. Scholarship recipients spend a week shooting and editing stills and videos to produce a marketing piece that is used by a nature center, area or program.
If you love nature and photography, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make personal contacts with the top pros in nature photography, as well as editors and other industry leaders.
Apply to participate in the NANPA Summit College Photography Scholarship Program and the biennial NANPA Nature Photography Summit and Trade Show, which takes place in odd-numbered years. This is a great time of fellowship and outstanding opportunities to network with peers and professionals, attend workshops, and photograph in the field alongside professional photographers and mentors. Scholarship awardees will also participate in a field-based, story-telling project for a Summit-area client. Past participants have described their experiences during the program with phrases like inspiring, incredible, and even life-changing!
