NPPA: The Voice of Visual Journalists

NPPA Event Tuition Grants

Attention professional still photographers! We're offering tuition grants for our 2014 line-up of educational programming. We're also able to offer a limited number of travel grants to help cover additional expenses.

The NPPA is able to provide these scholarships through funds distributed by The Authors Coalition of America (ACA), an association of organizations representing independent authors including illustrators, photographers, songwriters, text writers and visual artists. The main role of the ACA is to distribute money collected for copying non-title-specific works abroad, primarily in Europe. Non-title-specific works are those that cannot be identified individually or by copyright owner. Due to ACA restrictions on the use of the funds, we are only able to offer scholarships to professional still photographers living in the US whose published work is reasonably capable of being reprographically reproduced (i.e. photocopied) abroad.

If you're eligible, please fill out the online application form.

We currently have scholarships available for each of these upcoming events:

These grants are open to all photographers, whether they are NPPA members or not.

Deadline for applications: Midnight EST on Friday, February 14th.
