Thanks to a generous grant from the Joy of Giving Something Foundation (JGS), Imagining America (IA) invites publicly engaged students of photography or digital media from our member institutions to apply for a tuition award and to join a national working group of students.The goal of the IA/JGS Fellows Program is to elevate photography and digital media as a pathway for students to pursue their careers and make a difference in their communities.

Criteria includes:

  • Financial need
  • Artistic merit
  • Quality of community-engaged practice

The 2016-17 JGS Fellows will receive tuition scholarships of $2,000 each and will commit to engaging in a yearlong learning exchange that will result in a collaborative media project. Fellows will be invited to participate in the 2016 IA National Conference, October 6-8, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and will be eligible for a limited number of travel stipends to attend the conference.
