James Foley Memorial Scholarship

In International Photojournalism


In honor of the courageous men and women who risk their lives in order to report from the world’s most dangerous places ieiMedia has established the James Foley Memorial Scholarship in memory of the photojournalist who was tragically executed while covering the war in Syria.


This $5000 photojournalism scholarship covers tuition, program fees and meals for participation in our Urbino program, jointly sponsored by James Madison University and Iowa State University. The winner will work with two award-winning photojournalists in an experiential program that runs through the month of June 2015. The recipient is responsible for his/her own airfare.


To enter the competition you must submit a link to an online photographic portfolio as well as a short letter explaining why an international reporting experience is important for your education. The portfolio should be well organized and show evidence of curiosity about other groups or cultures. The letter should not exceed 300 words.


The judging will be done by a jury of professional photojournalists including former White House Photographer and Washington Post staff photographer Susan Biddle as well as Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Dennis Chamberlin.


Deadline for submissions:  February 1, 2015

IMPORTANT - New "Permanent" folder on Mac HDs in O-wing

Friday, 05 September 2014 09:20

There is now a new folder on the Macintosh HD called "Permanent" (as per attached image). If a user wishes to save content (temporarily) to a "safe" place locally on a Mac, this is now the place to save files etc instead of the "Public" folder on the desktop (which users have been used to in the past).

The "Public" folder will still remain on the desktop however it is not meant to be used for saving files to, as all content will now be purged from this folder every time a user logs off. Anything saved in the "Permanent" folder will stick around unless someone deletes the files. All users do have full read/write access to both locations though, so please keep this in mind.

The following message will be temporarily taped to the monitors in rooms O-231, O-235, O-239 and the edit suites... "Don't save to "Public" folder on Desktop! Contents are now deleted when you log off. The "Permanent" folder on "Macintosh HD" is the new place to save content (temporarily)."

Identity Crisis

Will we talk of a "nonprofit sector
in 10 years?

What we variously call the "nonprofit", "non-government", "voluntary", or "third" sector (or any other number of monikers) is experiencing a profound identity crisis: More and more people are seeing a disconnect between activities that create social value or address community purpose, and the legal forms, financial models or compensatory expectations that have historically been attached to such activities.
