Call for entries


For one in five Georgians, poverty is a daily reality – with basic necessities like food and shelter far from guaranteed. And with one of the lowest rates of social mobility in the country, it’s likely that many Georgia children born into poverty will never escape.

To bring greater visibility to this issue, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Georgia (SVdP) is creating 100 Profiles of Poverty – a photo gallery depicting the plight of Georgia’s most vulnerable populations.

The exhibit, which coincides with our 100th anniversary in fall 2014, will serve as a thought platform for discussion and incite a clear call for others to join our fight to break the cycle of poverty. Top photographers from across the state are participating – coming together to capture the challenges facing this population as well as moments of hope and progress. 

We launched our call for entries last week – and photographers (students, amateurs, professionals alike) are invited to participate. More information here: http://www.svdpatl.org/misc/100-profiles-povertyand on our Facebook page.

Fulbright Student Scholarships

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs.  During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others' viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.  For more information, visit the Fulbright U.S. Student Program website at
