NPPF Still and Multimedia Scholarship

While other scholarships memorialize individuals and are supported by funds contributed by friends, relatives or employers, this award is made from many contributions and the gradual accumulation of money and interest gained in the NPPF general fund. It honors the profession in general and the members of NPPA in particular.

- Provide evidence of an aptitude for photojournalism as well as academic ability and financial need
- Provide grade point average as an indication that applicant can successfully complete college studies
- Explain financial need
- Use the scholarship at the beginning of the next semester. Otherwise, it will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate candidate
