The Weston Scholarship was established to support high school and college students studying fine art photography, specifically students practicing black and white film photography. Students must be enrolled in a Monterey or Santa Cruz County high school, college, or university when they apply for a Weston Scholarship. Film and Digital Portfolios Accepted. Your portfolio must consist of only one medium. For example: a portfolio of all digital images or a portfolio of all film images.
A student must only submit one portfolio. Only students who submit tangible portfolios will be eligible for hanging in the Weston Scholarship Exhibition at The Monterey Museum of Art. Applicants who have been awarded first place in a past Weston Scholarship competition are not eligible to win the same award again in subsequent years; however, they are eligible for all other award categories.
