St. Louis workshop travel grants

SNDF offers students grants to help them attend the Annual Workshop and Exhibition in St. Louis on Sept. 29-Oct. 1. Each grant covers the $220 registration fee to the workshop as well as a $500 travel stipend. Grant recipients agree to volunteer at least four hours assisting on-site, either with conference logistics or live Web coverage.

To apply, fill out and submit this form by May 27, 2011.

SND Foundation Scholarship

Annually, SNDF awards this scholarship to a deserving student interested in and showing promise for pursuing a career in visual journalism. The cash award is $2,000.

This award is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors at any accredited four-year school worldwide. The student must be a member in good standing of the Society for News Design. The annual award is renewable once, but recipients must re-apply for consideration.

The scholarship recognizes potential for excellence in print, interactive design and both.

All applicants must be a journalism major or major in a field of related study with the intent of pursuing a career in visual journalism.

All applicants will be assessed on four areas: talent, scholarship, service and character. Submission requirements are outlined in full at the link below.
