John Chervinsky
The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA is offering a scholarship to aid emerging photographers in honor of Photographer's Showcase artist and our friend, John Chervinsky, who passed away in 2015. An engineer and scientist, as well as a photographer, John's work was experimental in nature primarily dealing with reality, perception, and representation. John was warm, humble, and engaging and is missed by all who knew him.

About the Scholarship


The John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship seeks to recognize, encourage and reward photographers with the potential to create a body of work and sustain solo exhibitions. Awarded annually, the Scholarship provides recipients with a monetary award of $3,000, an exhibition of their work at the Griffin Museum of Photography, and a volume from John’s personal library of photography books. The Scholarship seeks to provide a watershed moment in the professional lives of emerging photographers, providing them with the support and encouragement necessary to develop, articulate and grow their own vision for photography.

Eligibility Criteria

The scholarship is open to photographers who have produced individual works of photography and/or are in the process of producing bodies of work.

We are looking for candidates who are serious about photography, whose potential is emerging and whose photography will benefit from this scholarship. Candidates should not be currently enrolled in a photography degree program. There is no age limit. There are no residency requirements.

Photographers without gallery representation who have not exhibited solo in a gallery/museum setting are eligible (coffee shop, community gallery, library etc. are eligible exhibition settings).

This scholarship is not for well-established photographers. Well-established photographers are individuals in mid-photography-careers and are seen by the public and peers as distinguished in the field of photography and have many accomplishments as a photographer. Please note again that an artist who has had SOLO exhibitions in established galleries/museums or has gallery representation will be considered too accomplished to receive this scholarship.
