Alexia Foundation has just started accepting applications for its 2015 Student Grants for still photography and multimedia projects from around the world.
The Foundation provides educational opportunities and cash grants to help students produce bodies of work that share its goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding. Student are encouraged to consider projects that explore cultural understanding in or near their local community.
Grants are given for First Place, Second Place and, at judges’ discretion, Award(s) of Excellence and vary between undergraduate and graduate students.
The First Place Award for undergraduate students includes full tuition for study at the Syracuse University in London — the tuition is approximately $19,000. The First Place Award for graduate students pays pays tuition for two (2) classes and program fees, up to a maximum of $15,000.
Applicants for the 2015 student grants 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.
The Alexia Foundation promotes the power of photojournalism to give voice to social injustice, to respect history lest we forget it and to understand cultural difference as our strength – not our weakness.
Through grants, scholarships and special projects, The Alexia Foundation supports photographers as agents for change.
