The deadline for The Alexia student grants is almost here. Student photojournalists have until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 14 to submit their proposals. Our grants enable current college student photojournalists to produce substantial bodies of work that share the Foundation’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding as well as provide opportunities for students to increase their abilities through workshops or other educational offerings.
The first prize is a $1000 grant and a semester at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications. The semester does not need to be used as part of a degree seeking sequence. We think of it as an opportunity to uniquely expand one’s story telling capabilities. $500 will also be awarded to the first place student’s academic department.
Up to four award of excellence winners will receive $500 grants and $1500 to use on tuition for a one-day MediaStorm workshop, a Momenta Workshop, The Kalish Workshop or to apply to tuition at Syracuse University.
If you are looking for guidance in your application, we are offering it. Last Thursday, Alexia Chair Mike Davis sat down and answered questions about The Alexia grants for an hour on Facebook live. You can view the whole video here. You can also read his fantastic, “How Do You Create a Successful Grant Submission?” on our blog.
Applying for The Alexia student grants is free. We look forward to reading your compelling proposals and seeing your powerful images.
