Posted on Sep 02 in Multimedia Journalism

Undergraduate and graduate students can apply for a US$5,000 grant.

The Conflict and Development Center at Texas A&M University organizes the Student Media Grants Program. The photojournalism award encourages students to use innovative methods to research and chronicle issues facing fragile and conflict-affected nations, especially in Latin America.

Selected participants must commit to a three-month period capturing conflict-related issues facing Latin America through photography. They must document their experiences through a series of posts for the ConDev Blog and photo and/or video journalism.

Students should submit proposals that describe their expected travel, research and photo subjects. Possible topics include food insecurity, health, education, land tenure and poverty in fragile and conflict-affected nations.

The program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students from accredited universities worldwide.

The deadline is Oct. 31.
