Distinguished photographer Dorothea Lange once said that, “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
Pictures can often tell stories that words cannot. Photographers use their skills and artistic eye to focus on details that help enhance the little aspects of life. The KC R. Sandidge Photography Scholarship will support one high school senior who strives to make photography a part of their future.
Any high school student with an interest in pursuing photography is encouraged to apply for this scholarship.
To apply, submit a collection of 3-5 images from your photography portfolio that relate to one another in a way that is entirely up to you. Editing is allowed as long as the integrity of the subjects photographed are maintained.
Tell us about your journey in creating the portfolio you submitted.
The application deadline is Apr 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Apr 30, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,001. It will be awarded to 1 winner every every year.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 30, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
