Paper Boat Creative’s Scholarship Program

A Scholarship Grant geared towards Student Photographers & Artists

Paper Boat Creative aims to help nurture the next generation of photographers by offering scholarship grants to promising student photographers and artists who show an aptitude for excellence and possess the qualities we value in the professional world.

Through this program, we hope to empower budding artists and photographers as they build their experience and learn how to apply the theories of photography into their portfolio. Scholars might also see their work published on Paper Boat Creative’s website or Getty Images.

The scholarship is open to undergraduate, and graduate students from the United States and the United Kingdom. Paper Boat Creative will offer a $1,000 cash grant, which the scholars may use for their education, training, or internship.

Many dream of becoming photographers and digital artists but are unable to pursue this career path because of financial limitations. With this scholarship program, Paper Boat Creative can help ease one of the roadblocks keeping talented youths from reaching their highest potential.
