Kathy Beth Kantor Memorial Scholarship in Photography
In memory of his daughter, Kathy Beth, ear,-nose,-and-throat-doctor-to-the-stars Dr. Edward Kantor and Laurie Kaman, Kathy’s best friend, established this very competitive and unique scholarship for three visual artists with a passion for photography—one senior, one junior, and one sophomore. This award involves a rigorous application and photography portfolio review process, after which the senior winner’s college is given $3,000 and the junior and sophomore receive gift certificates to a camera store to purchase photographic equipment.
