Alexia Foundation 2014 Student Grants

Alexia Foundation 2014 Student Grants 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.

he Grant was established to help promote world peace and cultural understanding. The strength of your proposal will be judged equally to your photographic skills. The Grant goes to those who clearly and concisely propose significant projects that share in the Foundation’s mission and who demonstrate the ability to accomplish their proposals by showing photographs that reflect the ability to execute the proposed project. Photographs you submit with your proposal may be about your proposal’s subject or of your past work that is of a similar type.

You are encouraged to have your application reviewed and proofread for accuracy, clarity and conciseness. You may confer with your professors on topic selection and proposal writing.

When evaluating your portfolio, the judges consider your technical ability, your ability to work with your subjects and your style. Winning recipients will be those who provide strong story proposals with portfolios that exhibit the photographic ability to execute a story at the highest level.
