The Princess Grace Awards Program

the Princess Grace Foundation-USA is dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging talent in theater, dance, and film by awarding grants in the form of scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships.

Working in conjunction with nominating schools and non-profit companies, the Princess Grace Awards recognize the talent of individual artists in theater, dance, and film.

All applicants must be US Citizens or have obtained permanent resident status, and each grant must be completed in the United States. All nominating organizations must have 501(c)(3) status. Each category has unique guidelines specific to the discipline.

Application procedures and deadlines vary by category.

  • Applicants must be nominated by the dean/department chair of their academic program (if applying for a scholarship) or the artistic director of a company (if applying for an apprenticeship or fellowship).
  • Film Scholarships are available only to graduate or undergraduate students who will be working on their thesis films during the annual grant period September 1 – August 31. Students must be attending a school on the Foundation’s list of approved institutions.
  • Availability and deadlines for applications:
    • Theater and Playwriting   -   Postmark deadline March 31, 2012
