High School and College students, have you ever dreamed of sharing your passion for nature photography with others your age, as well as with adults who are currently seriously involved in nature photography? Would you enjoy having breakfast with a professional nature photographer who you admire, or meeting photo editors from well-known nature magazines? Might you enjoy a field trip led by professional photographers, or attending presentations where they explain the tips and techniques of their craft?

These and many more exciting experiences, including attending the NANPA Annual Summit and Trade Show, are available to a small group of students selected annually for the NANPA High School Scholarship Program and the NANPA Summit College Photography Scholarship Program.

Since there are a limited number of positions available in the NANPA scholarship programs, a student may receive only one scholarship between both the high school and college programs.

Scholarship students must pay for their own transportation to the NANPA Summit, but expenses for all events and photo instruction are covered.

Additional fees may apply to each program, please see the links below for more details and application forms.

Through the NANPA Foundation, NANPA spends $1,500-$2,500 per student to develop and operate the scholarship programs. We invite you to make a contribution to help support the programs for future students.
