The Alexia Grants

The Alexia awards grants to student and professional visual journalists to help them produce projects that inspire change by addressing topics that are socially significant. See rules below for details on each. The Alexia Grants were created 30 years ago to support still photographers and that remains the primary mission. The Alexia recognizes that the profession more and more calls for a diverse range of story forms. Therefore, while submissions must have a set of still photographs, there may also be other story forms submitted as part of the grant application submission. Those may include audio, video, VR or any other visual format. There will be a spot on the submission site to post up to two links. Grants are administered by the Foundation and the endowed Alexia Chair at The Newhouse School at Syracuse University.
