$500 Worldwide Student Scholarship

What is it?

At Drifted we feel strongly about giving back to our community.

“The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet” – Aristotle

As such we are delighted to announce our annual Drifted scholarship.

We created the Drifted scholarship to help foster the next generation of automotive photographers.

This scholarship is designed to help one student advance their photography studies every year with a $500 grant.

Whether you just want to learn how to point a camera, shoot feature cars or cover high end drifting events, we want to help make your dream a reality.

Both current students and rising freshmen are eligible for this scholarship. The $500 scholarship will be awarded to one student and the money will be transferred to their University to go towards the tuition fee.

The student will be chosen based on their creativity in and commitment to what they’re studying. The choice will be made by the Drifted team.

How to apply?

To apply, applicants need to submit one piece of work. There are no limits on the form of this work. Examples of work would be a car feature with photographs, an event report or something similar.

The work will remain the student’s property. Drifted will only consider the work for this scholarship and will not use it for any other purposes unless expressly stated.

The student wholly reserves the right to submit this work to other bodies and publish it elsewhere. If you have any questions about the scholarship, please send an email to scholarship@drifted.com. We will do our best to reply within 48 hours.

Scholarship partners

We are extremely grateful to all the partners that are making our scholarship possible by helping us to spread the message to students around the world.

Students of all Universities and Community Colleges are eligible for the scholarship as long as their educational institution is a partner in this campaign.

How to become a partner

Who are we?

Drifted was founded in 2010 by three drift fans who wanted to build a website to fill the gap of quality worldwide drifting coverage.

Our website and social channels featured drifting events, car spotlights, desktop wallpapers – pretty much anything and everything drift.

We have since expanded by featuring the best drifting games, videos and tuning guides.

We are really proud to be in a position to offer a scholarship to help an aspiring photographer. This is our chance to give back to our community.
