Founded in memory of James Alan Cox, a television photojournalist, the James Alan Cox Foundation for Student Photojournalists aims to provide financial support to student photojournalists of high school and college age. Jim Cox, who was a television photojournalist in Phoenix, always "told a story" through his work, whether it was in video or still photography. Each award is $2,500.
Five $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to five college or technical school students, payable to their school (to be used for the winning students’ educational expenses). Four awards will be for video work while one will be for still photography. One $2,500 scholarship will be awarded to one graduate student, payable to their school (to be used for the winning student’s educational expenses), for video work. Five Digital SLR Cameras will be awarded to five high school students. (High school applicants should only submit still photographs. The video awards are for college and graduate students only.)
