On January 29th Nikon announced that they are bringing the “Nikon Storytellers Scholarship” back for the second year in a row, continuing their commitment to education.

The Storytellers Scholarship is available to undergrad and grad students in the United States and Canada who are pursuing creative careers. These can be students working towards visual arts, fine arts, journalism, film, photography, and multimedia/content creation degrees.
