Scholarships for Students

"I gained such valuable experience and without my scholarship I would not have been able to attend the Academy. The Academy helped me progress as an artist and I now enjoy mentoring new students and encouraging them on their own creative journeys." - Wyatt Peck 

To enable motivated young students from the community whose families may be at a financial disadvantage to attend our summer academy, we have created a
Scholarship FundThe more funds we raise, the more scholarships we can award, thereby creating more opportunities for students to attend.  These scholarship awards are open and available to any young students that apply, and they need not plan to pursue a certificate or degree in the photographic arts. 

We are seeking your help to build up this fund to give young photographers the chance to cultivate their skills and present their work to the community!

Please click here if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.
