As deadly wildfires globally increase in number and severity, residents of fire-prone areas are finding themselves on the frontline of these historic and potential climate-changing events. This exhibition of over 50 images and a documentary film from recent California fire seasons, come together in this body of work from nine critically-acclaimed photojournalists and explores the ramifications these fires can have and reveal the pain, suffering and all-encompassing loss the victims endure.

FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS

 

Photographer Justin Sullivan is seen here seeking a low angle while covering the Camp Fire of 2018. “Being with a group that is well trained and understands how to navigate these dangerous fires is so important to me,” Sullivan says. “Being in a car with someone when you’re driving down roads that have fire on both sides with trees and power lines falling all around is so much better than trying to navigate it on your own.” Photo by Noah Berger.

 

Freelance photographer Noah Berger has spent 24 years covering the San Francisco Bay Area for editorial, corporate and government clients. He works for national and international news outlets including the Associated Press, Reuters, San Francisco Chronicle and LA Times. On the corporate side, Noah covers transportation and infrastructure for government agencies and works often with health care organizations. A native of New York, Noah lives in Alameda – an island across the bay from San Francisco – with his wife and 9-year-old son.

Scholarship Workshop for Undergraduate Students

  • Location: Jody Richards Hall Auditorium
  • Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm

The Department of Student Financial Assistance at Western Kentucky University (WKU) is hosting a Scholarship Workshop for current undergraduate WKU students. This free event will take place on WKU’s campus on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at Jody Richards Hall, Room 166 (Auditorium).  Students who attend this workshop will be entered into a drawing for one $500 WKU Scholarship. This is a swipeable event and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information about this event, call 270-745-2755 or send an email to scholarships@wku.edu.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THIS WORKSHOP

During this workshop, students will learn about different institutional and external scholarships. Representatives from Study Abroad, Study Away, and the Office of Scholar Development will also be in attendance. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to receive assistance from a financial aid professional in both completing a WKU scholarship application and searching for outside scholarships at a JRH computer lab.

Students who attend this event will be placed in a drawing where one current WKU student will receive a one-time $500 scholarship. In order to utilize this scholarship, the student must be planning to attend WKU as a full-time undergraduate during the Spring 2020 semester. This scholarship is only applicable at Western Kentucky University.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT

“The purpose of this event is to equip incoming students with tools for accessing external funding sources for college expenses,” said Bryson Davis, the Director of the WKU Department of Student Financial Assistance. “With the cost of college increasing every year, it is important for students to not only complete a FAFSA each academic year but to also search and apply for outside funding opportunities. Additionally, by using scholarship funds, students may be able to decrease the amount that they borrow in student loans.”

Starting October 1, 2019, students can complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2020-2021 Academic Year. The FAFSA is a free application that allows students and their families to apply for federal and state financial aid such as grants and loans. Students can complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov.   

In addition to completing the FAFSA, current WKU students who are planning to return to WKU as a full-time student for the Fall 2020 semester can complete a TOPDollar application at https://wku.academicworks.com/. The TOPDollar application allows students to apply for various institutional and trust fund scholarships. The priority deadline for completing this scholarship application is February 1, 2020.

For more information about scholarships at WKU, visit www.wku.edu/financialaid/scholarships.
