Society for Photographic Education (SPE) is pleased to offer the following opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students. These awards are made possible by generous support from artists, organizations, individuals and merchants. Student scholarship recipients will be recognized at the national conference.
SPE STUDENT AWARDS
SPE student members can apply for scholarships to offset the cost of attending the 2010 national conference. This year we will offer eleven $500 SPE Student Awards to our talented student members. All SPE Student Awards, and the Jeannie Pearce Award, feature a $500 travel stipend to attend the national conference in Philadelphia, a 2010 national conference fee waiver and a one-year membership to SPE.
THE FREESTYLE CRYSTAL APPLE AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING
ACHIEVEMENT IN BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY
One student will be awarded a $5,000 cash prize, a 2010 national conference fee waiver and a one-year membership to SPE. The sponsoring faculty member will be presented with an engraved crystal apple. Please note: sponsoring faculty must teach at the institution where the student is currently enrolled.
The SPE Student Awards are open to all graduate and undergraduate students majoring/concentrating in photography. The Jeannie Pearce Award is open to all such students working with digital technology.
The Freestyle Crystal Apple Award for Outstanding Achievement in Black and White Photography is open to continuing full-time graduate or undergraduate students majoring/concentrating in photography at a degree or certificate-granting college or university. All light-sensitive processes, including alternative processes (Van Dyke brown, platinum, albumen, gum bichromate, cyanotype, kallitype, salt, liquid emulsion, lith printing, hand coloring, bromoil, modern day tintype, etc.) as long as the end product is a gelatin silver or handmade alternative process print. No digital prints accepted.
Applicants must be current students not graduating before the end of the academic year 2009-2010. All applicants must be members of SPE. Students must become members before submitting their scholarship applications. Failure to include any portion of the application materials will result in not being considered for any of the awards. Students who are not already 2009 SPE members must include payment ($55) to join SPE as a 2010 student member. Students are not eligible to receive the same award for two consecutive years, and cannot receive two awards at the same time.
