Scholarship History & Details
The Michael Laughlin scholarship was founded in recognition of former PPETN member Michael Laughlin’s never-ending willingness to share his knowledge of the trade. His skill set was widely recognized as a photographer and a business person.
Each year, when able, PPETN recognizes a member in Michael’s name and awards them a $500 scholarship towards a photography school of the applicant’s choice. The scholarship is paid for by the revenue that is generated by the monthly print competitions.
