Imagining America JGS Fellowship



Publicly engaged students who work with photography and/or digital media are invited to apply for a 2018-2019 JGS Fellowship. Selected fellows will commit to a year-long learning exchange that includes tuition support ($2,000), project support ($450), a travel award to our national conference, and opportunities for professional development.

The goal of the JGS Fellows Program is to elevate photography and digital media as pathways for students to pursue their careers and to make a difference in their communities. The program specifically aims to support students for whom economic and family circumstances render such career pathways particularly challenging. Over the course of the fellowship year, each fellow will: - Receive a $2,000 tuition scholarship, dispersed across fall and spring semesters. - Receive mentorship and $450 in financial support for each Fellow’s community projects. - Attend the 2018 Imagining America National Conference on October 19-21, 2018 in Chicago. Complimentary registration and travel awards are included. - Participate in regular, virtual learning exchanges. - Be connected to the consortium’s national network of scholars, educators, artists, and community organizers.
