Scholarships for Photography Majors

If you are picturing a career in photography, then you will be interested to know that there are many types of scholarships available to help you pursue your education in this field. Colleges and universities offering degree programs in art, design, fine art and photography are among the main sources of scholarships for photography majors. These scholarships typically require academic achievement, financial need and even in some cases the submission of a portfolio. Professional associations such as the National Press Photographers Association and the North American Nature Photography Association fund scholarships, with the former offering multiple awards to photojournalism students. Foundations, nonprofit agencies and memorial scholarships are other sources of photography scholarships. Some programs contain such requirements as residency in a specific state or the pursuit of a degree in a particular area of photography.
