Our Scholarships

We believe everyone deserves the space, the tools and the support to tell conservation stories. 

 

We recognize that the field of conservation visual storytelling has many hurdles to entry, and we are dedicated to help bring down the barriers that prevent diverse voices from being heard.

To that end, we periodically partner with companies, non-profit organizations and non-government organizations who nominate recipients of scholarships to our courses, workshops and programs, or provide sponsorship to create new scholarship opportunities.

Current Scholarship Opportunities
