An alert eye, quiet step and ready camera may win a $500 study abroad scholarship for Stephanie Long, a freshman biology and psychology major and member of the Honors College. Long’s photograph of a young moose splashing in a stream in Grand Teton National Park in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is a finalist in a national photo competition sponsored by University Language Services. Long is a front- runner in her round but needs your support! You can cast your vote at
Long has been taking photographs since the ninth grade and is active in the First Year Photo Project, whose purpose is to “encourage students to make the most of their first year of college” by documenting their experience with photographs. “It helps you meet other photographers on campus who like to take photos just for fun; I really enjoy it,” she said.
Long hopes to study abroad in Rome this summer. While searching online for study abroad scholarships, she found one that could reward her skills in photography. The top three entries will move into the final round of consideration for a $500 scholarship. The deadline to cast your vote is 11 a.m. CST/noon EST Monday, January 28.
