My friend and I (both students) are traveling around the US to explore our motherland. I am persuing a career in photography and she is persuing a career as a writer. We're doing everything as cheap as possible (sleeping on friends floors, staying in hostels, eating cheap) and we are both documenting the trip. It'll give us a chance to see the US and further our writing/photography skills. We're looking for scholarships and grants to help us do that but I'm having a hard time finding ones without a specific goal (i.e. photograph New York City).
Does anyone have any suggestions?
