Howard Chapnick Grant

Established in 1996 by the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund, the Howard Chapnick Grant encourages and supports leadership in fields ancillary to photojournalism, such as editing, research, education, and management. The grant honors the memory of Howard Chapnick and his enormous commitment to photojournalism.

The annual $5,000 Chapnick Grant may be used to finance any of a range of qualified undertakings, such as an educational program, research, a special long-term sabbatical project, or an internship to work with a noteworthy group or individual. Special consideration will be given to projects that promote social change and/or serve significant concerns of photojournalism. The grant is not intended to be used for the direct productions of photographs.

Recipients of the Howard Chapnick Grant will be selected by the Board of Trustees of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund in Humanistic Photography.

The Howard Chapnick Grant is supported by Harbers Family Foundation.
