This may not help your situation, but...

We had a visiting artist in residency at the Bemis talk to us about his
work. He is a photographer, and unfortunately I cannot remember his
name,
I think it is Glusgold. He is around 24 to 30 years of age, and has been
taking pictures for years. Anyways, he was unhappy with the results from
store bought photo paper, so he made his own. I was impressed, and
curious. Unfortunately I have not looked into doing this myself, but it
is a thought.

Back to your question, do your students have a gallery where they could
hold exhibitions and possibly sell their work? At the college level we
sell works towards the end of the semester to raise money for the art
department and ourselves. The money made from each work is divided
between the two like 70/30 with the artist receiving the higher
percentage.

Another idea - your photography program is quite large. Around here
(Omaha, Ne) most schools only have one photography class. Do your
students enter contests? Some of these contests offer cash awards or
scholarships. At one of the high schools I observed, students were
encouraged to enter. Just a thought.
