These two tuition-free scholarships are available to any high school or college student with a passion for photography. To apply, just email 10 small jogs (10 inches on longest side, 72 dpi) and a short statement about why you’d like to take the workshop (not more than 150 words) to me by Monday, October 1st. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org. A third scholarship is being offered for a BHSU student by the Black Hills State Photography Department. Stay tuned for application details about this third tuition-free scholarship.—Rebecca Norris Webb

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS WITH ALEX AND REBECCA
––Friday Oct. 12 thru Sunday Oct. 14: Boston: Weekend Workshop, produced by the Robert Klein Gallery Do you know where you’re going next with your photography –– or where it’s taking you? This intensive weekend workshop will help photographers begin to understand their own distinct way of seeing the world. It will also help photographers figure out their next step photographically –– from deepening their own unique vision to the process of discovering and making a long-term project that they’re passionate about, as well as the process of how long-term projects evolve into books and exhibitions. A workshop for serious amateurs and professionals alike, it will taught by Alex and Rebecca, a creative team who often edit projects and books together –– including their joint book and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, exhibition, “Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba,” Alex’s recent Aperture book, “The Suffering of Light,” and Rebecca’s new Radius book, “My Dakota.” Included in the workshop will be an editing exercise as well as an optional photography assignment and long-term project review.
