All professional members of the Vermont Professional Photographers Association are
eligible to receive scholarships to study photography at schools of photography.
Money for these scholarships come from interest from a fund which has been set up
with donations and profits which the Association has earned from its annual conferences.
To be eligible for a scholarship, the member must had paid dues on or before the
first of February each year and must have accumulated nine or more attendance points
(of a possible 14) during the year since the last conference in the following manner:
Regular bimonthly meetings, 2 points; PPANE Convention, 1 point; VPP Annual Convention,
at which scholarship is drawn, 3 points. Scholarships are awarded for study at any
school approved by the Executive Committee of the Association.
The Fund is named for the late Ivan and Bernice Burnham, loyal members of the Vermont
Professional Photographers, who gave freely of their knowledge and time to all members.
They operated a photography studio in Waterbury for many years.
The Ivan Burnham Fund winner must decide what it will be used for within 12 months
time and use it within 18 months time.
