The Alexia Foundation provides educational opportunities and cash grants to help students produce bodies of work that share the Foundation’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding.
Student applicants are encouraged to consider projects that explore cultural understanding in or near their local community. While the Foundation does not discourage proposals on topics outside the students’ region, no extra weight is given to these topics when determining winning Grant recipients. Rather, the Foundation believes applicants are more likely to complete a story closer to their school or home than one that requires travel.
The Foundation welcomes proposals for still photography or multimedia projects. Students are encouraged to submit multimedia pieces with their grant applications.
Applicants must be duly enrolled full-time students in an accredited college or university in the U.S. or abroad in a degree program at the time of application as either graduate or undergraduate students. No student who has completed more than three (3) internships or one (1) year of full-time professional experience is eligible. (“Full-time professional experience” shall be defined as earning more than one-half (1/2) of your gross annual income from photography (sales, assignments, etc.)
