Financial assistance and mentoring for emerging artists in theater, dance and film

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. This unique collaborative process fills vast voids in the artistic community: scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships give emerging artists the financial assistance and encouragement to focus on artistic excellence; monetary support for the nominating organizations eases fundraising challenges, directing resources toward the creative process.

All nominees (except playwrights, who may apply individually through, must be nominated by a school department chair/dean or company artistic director. Self-nominations are not allowed. Awards winners are selected annually by panels of experts in each field. Panelists review written material in advance of coming together to review all materials and discuss nominees. Panelists rotate yearly and are selected by the Chairs of Theater, Dance, and Film respectively, based on their knowledge and experience in each field.
