Jan Meyer Traveling Fellowship

The Jan Meyer (’87) Photography Traveling Fellowship is an annual competitive funding award for one graduating senior to travel to work on a proposed project. 

Description

 

 

 

 

 

In 1988, a generous gift from Janis Meyer, an alumnus of MICA who received an M.F.A. in photography, made it possible to endow a travel fellowship for senior photography students.  Between $4,000 – 5,000. will be awarded to a deserving senior photography student to travel in the U.S. or abroad for a photographic project. Upon their return they can use the facilities and required labs to complete the work. The recipient of this fellowship has an exhibition of their work in Main 0 Gallery in mid to late spring of the following year.  

The recipient is announced at the opening reception of the annual Meyer exhibition in Main 0 Gallery.  The fellowship is usually undertaken during the following summer.  The award will be formally announced at graduation ceremonies and the student must be present to receive it.  A note of the award will be made on the student’s transcript.  The recipient’s proposal and exhibition will be documented and archived for the department.

Eligibility

 

 

 

 

In the final year before graduation, senior photography majors in good standing are eligible to apply. The submission must include a clear, well-considered written project proposal, an estimate of how the funds would be used, a resume, and a portfolio of photographic work by the announced deadline. Seniors who finish their course work at mid-year are eligible to apply during the spring semester before their formal graduation even if they are not registered for classes. A senior can apply for this fellowship only once. 

Evaluation is based on the stated proposal and the quality of the work submitted as well as the student’s performance within the program.  If the committee decides that there are no proposals that qualify, the fellowship can be deferred for that year.
