Funding brief: ConDev’s Student Media Grants award up to $5,000 to current students interested in capturing conflict-related issues facing fragile and conflict-affected areas of the world through stunning photography. Past winners have travelled to and produced photography highlighting issues in Turkey, Nigeria, Kenya, Haiti, Ethiopia, Perú, and other conflict-affected regions.
ConDev—part of Texas A&M University’s Department of Agricultural Economics—works to improve the effectiveness of development programs and policies for conflict-affected and fragile countries through international research, education and projects. The Center uses science and technology to reduce armed conflict, sustain families and communities during conflict, and assist states to rapidly recover from conflict.
Purpose: To enable and encourage student photographers (especially those interested in photojournalism and international conflict) to document and highlight issues related to conflict and development through stunning visual media in the country where these events are taking place.

Project start date: N//A
Project duration: N//A
Eligible organization: As below
● The Student Media Grant is OPEN TO STUDENTS WORLDWIDE (undergraduate, graduate, PhD, etc.). Students graduating in April-May 2018 are also eligible to apply.
● A maximum team size of two people is eligible to submit a joint proposal.
Eligible Country: No country bar found (Open to all regions)
● It is unlikely that administrators will approve travel to a country where there is a U.S. Department of State travel warning in place. If you submit an application that proposes travel to a country under a travel warning, ConDev is required to seek external approval before you can travel there; if your proposed travel is not approved, your application will be removed from consideration. If you live in a country under a State Department travel warning, they are still required to seek external approval.
● The grant is open to students (undergraduate, graduate, Master’s, PhD) worldwide
Submission mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
How to apply: Proposals should be submitted as a Microsoft Word Document to email@example.com with “Student Media Grant: [Name of Student]” as the subject line, with any samples attached. Only one proposal can be submitted per student.
*Exception: To ensure that students submitting proposals in ‘high-risk’ locations are not at a disadvantage, we will allow students who are concerned that their first option might not get approved (due to safety concerns) to submit TWO proposals: a ‘high-risk’ proposal and a ‘lower-risk’ proposal. The two proposals will be judged (and scored) completely separately, but you are more than welcome to copy and paste parts from one proposal to the other to save on time, especially if the subject matter is similar for the two proposals
● All budget totals should be in U.S. dollars (USD).
