Rowell Fund for Tibet Announces 2017 Grantees
The Board of Advisors of the Rowell Fund for Tibet has selected 10 Tibetan grantees for financial support totaling $34,500 for 2017. The winners were chosen out of 21 project proposals with individual grants $3,000 to $3,500 and will be carried out in India and other countries.
The Rowell Fund for Tibet was established in 2003 in memory of the late Galen Rowell and his wife Barbara who died tragically in a plane crash in 2002. Galen Rowell was an internationally known outdoor photographer whose "Rainbow over the Potala Palace" has become an iconic photo for adventure travelers and Tibet supporters.
The Rowell Fund for Tibet, established by friends and family of Galen and Barbara, in cooperation with the International Campaign for Tibet, is to support the work of Tibetans communicating issues of importance to broader Tibetan or international audiences through photography, film-making, writing, journalism, and other projects.
The grantees for 2017 are:
Two of the projects are confidential ones, as requested by the grantees and considering the nature of the projects.
The Advisory Board of the Rowell Fund includes: John Ackerly, Conrad Anker, David Breashears, Jimmy Chin, Bob and Beth Cushman, John Jancik, Terri Baker, Bob Palais, Tony Rowell and Nicole Rowell Ryan. The Fund is managed by the International Campaign for Tibet.
