The Royal Photographic Society is very pleased to announce a major new initiative in offering a number of different bursary schemes for the benefit of young image makers. These have been made possible by funding from a number of different sources that include: income from The Society’s investments, legacies and a generous donation from the photographic industry (Genix Imaging).

 They will be available for members and non-members and  three types are currently on offer:

1.  To support  professional or potential professional photographers in commercial photography. This Jeff Vickers FRPS Genix Imaging Bursary (www.genix.co.uk) is in support of young photographers (up to the age of 30) who are in commercial professional practice or who can demonstrate that they will become involved (excluding photojournalism which is covered by The Joan Wakelin Award).

2. To support postgraduate students undertaking photographic research or studying Masters courses in photography. These Postgraduate Bursaries are open to bids from Course Leaders of Masters  courses or Research Directors in Photography at UK Colleges and Universities for nominating students, no more than one per institution.

3.  To enable young photographers to attend selected Society Regional and Group events that they would not normally be able to afford. These  Young Student  Bursaries are only open to bids from Society Regional and Group Organisers.
