Photojournalists, graduate students and undergraduates can apply for a grant.
The Alexia Foundation is seeking applicants for its professional and student photography grants, which aim to help photographers produce substantial picture stories that further the foundation's goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding.
The winner of the professional grant will receive US$20,000 for the production of still photography or multimedia projects.
Awards for the graduate and undergraduate grants include tuition for study at Syracuse University in London and cash grants.
Grants will be awarded to applicants who can further cultural understanding and world peace by conceiving and writing a concise, focused and meaningful story proposal and who can demonstrate the ability to visually execute that story with compelling images.
There is no mathematical formula for determining grantees, but the proposal and photography must both be of the highest quality.
The deadline to apply for professional grants is Jan. 13. The deadline for student grants is Jan. 27.
