Students of, or those accepted to, an institution of higher education specializing in the study of photography are invited to apply for this year’s $1,000 Janie Moore Greene Grant.

Applications are due October 31st.

The NANPA Foundation awards the grant annually to a student of a 2-year or 4-year college, art/design school or photography school. The scholarship awards are paid directly to the institution of higher education at which the student is, or will be, enrolled.

2015 Janie Moore Greene Grant Recipient Michelle A. Butler used the grant to help finish her Master’s of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.

Butler worked on a photo-documentary thesis project to raise awareness about the condition of birds in the Americas. It highlights the habitats needed for nesting, wintering and migration and calls for conservation efforts that citizens can make to help protect these essential components to the ecosystem.
