Women Photograph, Free Grant Applications and COVID-19 Emergency Fund

Women Photograph + Nikon Grants

These $5,000 grants will support photography projects — either new or in-progress — from visual journalists working in a documentary capacity.

Five grants are available, one of which will be earmarked for a non-binary or transgender photographer.

Applicants are encouraged to submit a story, rather than singles, as part of the grant application. The images need not be related to the project proposal. Multimedia projects are welcome.

Women Photograph + Getty Images Scholarship

Women Photograph has partnered with Getty Images to award a $10,000 scholarship to a student focused on photojournalism. The scholarship funds can be used for tuition, camera equipment or other education costs during the 2020-2021 school year.

The Women Photograph + Getty Images Scholarship is open to undergraduate and graduate students attending accredited colleges and universities worldwide. It is not required that students be majoring in photojournalism or photography. The scholarship is also open to people pursuing photographic education outside the university setting, such as vocational schools, workshops and other extended educational courses. Determination of eligibility will be at the discretion of Women Photograph and Getty Images.

Applicants should submit a portfolio of 15-20 images, an essay (300 words maximum) outlining their relationship to photojournalism and how this scholarship would advance their photographic education, and proof of enrollment in a university, college, workshop, or other educational institution.

Emergency Fund COVID-19

“The first round of the Emergency Fund closed on Friday, April 3: we plan on distributing funds raised so far to as many of those applicants as we can.

We will leave the application portal open in the hopes that we can continue to raise money and help as many photographers as possible, but are not sure when we’ll next be able to do a round of disbursement. We will respond to all photographers who applied by April 15 at the latest.”
