ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP:
We at Adventographer believe that travel is a catalyst for change, for personal growth, for acceptance and tolerance. We have a passion for traveling and recording the unique and life changing moments that can happen during those adventures. That’s why we decided that this year’s topic for our scholarship contest should be a bit different.
The Adventographer staff are proud once again to offer a biannual $1500 scholarship to one lucky applicant in each of the fall and spring semesters. We are calling all college and university students to apply. Submissions will be of a photo the applicant has taken while traveling, locally or abroad. Are you a travel addict? Perhaps you’ve been trekking with Gorillas in Africa? or Traipsing around Banff and the Rocky Mountains? Send us your best travel photo followed by a 1000-word short format essay of why that memory or moment is special to you. There are no limits aside from your creativity. – Any photo you took while traveling can compete! Need some Inspiration? Grab a Book or Check out our Travel Tips!
We will decide the winner based on the quality of the photo and the essay submitted. Read on to learn how to apply. If you don’t’ know what to submit, there’s plenty of time to make some new memories before you apply! Take your camera and go Explore.Create.Educate!
