The Student Media Grant Program provides awardees with $5,000 to display their photojournalism skills to bring awareness to conflict areas.
ConDev’s Student Media Grants award up to $5,000 to current students interested in capturing conflict-related issues facing fragile and conflict-affected areas of Latin America through stunning photography. This photojournalism grant is funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation Chair on Conflict and Development.
The application period is closed at this time.
University students (undergraduate and graduate) from around the world are encouraged to apply, but projects must be conducted in Latin America.
