The Nikon Storytellers Scholarship is designed to celebrate the power of visual storytelling by supporting the education of young content creators. The Nikon Storytellers Scholarship is open to undergraduate and graduate students at an accredited, non-profit college/university or vocational/technical school in the United States or Canada pursuing degrees in visual arts, fine arts, journalism, film, photography and multimedia/content creation who will have completed their freshman year of college or academic equivalent before the start of the next academic year.
Eligible students can apply to be one of ten individuals awarded with an academic scholarship of $10,000 to help foster their growth and pursue careers in creative fields. Semi-finalists will be invited to submit a portfolio of images or brief video for consideration by a selection committee who will determine the ten winning applicants. Scholarships will be awarded for use in the coming academic school year.
