I’ve been a member of the University Photographers’ Association since 1994 and this organization has provided me with education, friendship and support. My school, Ferris State University, has also supported me financially every year to attend the Technical Symposium because they can see the value of this important educational opportunity.
We know that there are smaller schools that don’t have a lot of money for continuing education for their staff. Amy and I would like to help. We will cover the symposium fee for one first time attendee. Transportation and housing are not included but there are ways to work that out.
Here’s our criteria:
- A campus student population of 12,500 or less
- It’s your first time attending
- A statement of what you’d like to learn
- A 10-15 image portfolio
- A short resume or bio
- Phone number
- The deadline for applications is April 12, 2017
- The recipient will be notified on May 12, 2017
