Examples of scholarship applications
Another beautiful scholarship application by Sophia Laws (@sophiedoe) from Soka University for our Travel Journalism & Photography Internship Seminar in Cuba. “A big part of my life has always been attempting things out of my comfort zone, from living abroad in high school, to becoming a double sport athlete in college. I have recently been accepted, and am currently applying for a scholarship, to a two week photojournalism internship in Cuba through @rooster_gnn that involves writing and publishing five professional grade articles. I am beyond thrilled that I may have this opportunity to keep exploring and pushing myself to new limits academically. I feel so thankful to everyone that has supported me in reaching for my goals. Here’s hoping your girl makes it to Cuba!🌎 #RGNNCUBA”
