Grants -- Photography and Multimedia Projects

Funding Agency:
Alexia Foundation for Peace

For 30 years, The Alexia grants have supported student and professional visual communicators who produce projects that inspire change by addressing socially significant topics. 

Grants are awarded to applicants who can produce significant projects that share in The Alexia’s mission and who demonstrate the ability to accomplish their projects.

Professional grants: Professional grants enable established photographers and filmmakers to produce substantial bodies of work that share The Alexia’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding. The Alexia encourages a diversity of creators, issues and approaches, and values work that elevates understanding and inspires meaningful change. Professional recipients receive $20,000 in funding. The professional grant application has a $50 fee.

Student grants: These grants enable current college student photographers to produce bodies of work that share The Alexia’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding. We encourage a diversity of creators, issues and approaches, and value work that elevates understanding and inspires meaningful change. Student recipients receive a fellowship for tuition and fees to enroll in three courses during a semester at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in New York. They also receive a $1,000 stipend and serve as the research assistant (a paid position) to The Alexia Chair.
