The Alexia Foundation will begin accepting grant applications on November 15th, 2013. The deadline is January 13th, 2014 for professionals, and January 27th for students.

The Alexia Foundation Grants were established to help promote world peace and cultural understanding. The strength of the proposal will be judged equally to photographic skills. The Grant goes to those who clearly and concisely propose significant projects that share in the Foundation’s mission of promoting peace and understanding and who also submit photographs that reflect the ability to execute their proposed project.

Available Grants

  • This year the award for the Professional Grant has been raised to $20,000.
  • The Student Winner will receive funding for a semester at the Syracuse University London Program, a $1,000 cash grant to help produce the proposed body of work, a $300 gift card from Dury’s Photo and $500 will be awarded to that student’s academic department. Student awards will also be awarded to a Second Place Winner, and three Award of Excellence Winners.
  • The Foundation has added a new student grant, The Gilka Grant, which will recognize the best project proposal that also includes a multimedia component. The winner of The Gilka Grant will receive a $1,500 scholarship to attend the Kalish Workshop.

How to Apply

Applying for the Student Grant is free, but there is a $50 application fee for the Professional Grant. Review the rules and applications for the Student and Professional Grants, and start preparing your materials today.
