Cash Prize
These grants enable current college student photographers to produce bodies of work that share The Alexia’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding. We encourage a diversity of creators, issues and approaches, and value work that elevates understanding and inspires meaningful change.

Student applicants are encouraged to consider proposing projects located close to where they live because a successful body of work is more likely with easy and repeated access. Most student grant recipients are already working on their projects when they apply.

Student recipients receive a fellowship for tuition and fees to enroll in three courses during a semester at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in New York. They also receive a $1,000 stipend and serve as the research assistant (a paid position) to The Alexia Chair.
