Rich Beckman Award in Documentary Multimedia Storytelling


This award goes to a photojournalism student or students to conduct fieldwork for documentary still photography projects. The scholarship was created to enable photojournalism students to shoot stories they might not otherwise have the opportunity to pursue.

Applicants must be majors or pre-majors (undergraduate and graduate students are eligible) or must have graduated as majors during the school year.

The resulting work must be of content and quality suitable for publication, and students must complete their projects within one year of receipt of the funds.

Special Considerations

Students must have completed at least one photojournalism course in the school before applying. For more information, contact Laura Ruel or visit
