Women Photograph is an initiative that launched in 2017 to elevate the voices of women* visual journalists.
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.
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.
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.
Deadline : May 15, 2020

The scholarship is also open to people pursuing photographic education outside the university setting, such as vocational schools, workshops and other extended educational courses.
