Honoring the legacy of educator Dean Collins—his gift for teaching, his passion for quality, and his lifetime of contributions to the Photoshop and Photography community—the Dean Collins Scholarship is awarded annually to one high school or college educator nominated by his or her students.

The scholarship features an opportunity to attend NAPP’s annual convention – Photoshop World Conference & Expo and includes round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, a one-year NAPP membership, and subscription to Photoshop User magazine.
