Alexia Foundation for World Peace
Grants to USA, Canada, and International students pursuing an associate, undergraduate, or graduate degree at an accredited college or university for photography education and a body of work that promotes world peace. Funding is intended to enable current college student photographers to produce substantial bodies of work that share the Foundation’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding. Work that helps bring about change is more valued.
Student applicants are encouraged to consider proposing projects close to where you are. The Foundation's experience is that you’re more likely to produce a successful body of work if you can easily access the setting where you’ll produce the work. Most student grant recipients had already started working on the project for which they received an Alexia grant.
The first place grant recipient receives a semester-long fellowship that pays tuition for three courses at Syracuse University. The recipient is also the graduate research assistant for The Alexia Chair at The Newhouse School during the semester.
The Grant was established to help promote world peace and cultural understanding. The strength of your written proposal will be judged equally to your photographic skills. The Grant goes to those who clearly and concisely propose significant projects that share in the Foundation’s mission and who demonstrate the ability to accomplish their proposals as demonstrated by the images submitted with the proposal.
