The Alexia Foundation 2017 grants are now open for photography applicants to apply. The Alexia Foundation offers production grants to students and professional photographers to give them the financial ability to produce substantial stories that drive change in the effort to make the world a better place. Students also get scholarship opportunities.

Professional: The Alexia Foundation offers a professional Alexia Grant to enable professional photographers and visual journalists 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. Grants are administered by the Foundation and the endowed Alexia Chair at The Newhouse School at Syracuse University.
Alexia Foundation Grants were created to support still photographers and that remains our primary mission. We recognize that the profession more and more calls for a diverse range of story forms. Therefore, while your submissions must have a set of still photographs, you may also submit other story forms as part of your grant application submission. Those may include audio, motion, VR or any other visual format. The Professional Grant recipient will receive $20,000 for the production of the proposed project. There is a $50 application fee for professional grant applications.

Student: The Alexia Foundation offers a Student Alexia Grant 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 towhere you are. Our 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.
