Student Diversity Photograph Contest:


Furman University is sponsoring a student diversity photography contest that provides prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.

We are seeking digital photographs that represent what diversity and inclusion look like to you at Furman.

Submit a digital photograph that illustrates diversity, inclusion and what they mean to you. Along with the photo, include a brief description that “tells the story” of the photograph.
