Scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships of up to $30,000 to USA students and individual artists for professional training in the theater arts. Funding is intended to support tuition costs for students in their final year, as well as artistic fees and salaries for mentorships and mainstage production work.
The Princess Grace Awards seeks to discover performers, designers, and directors and nurture their artistic pursuits throughout their careers. Princess Grace Theater Awards are available to emerging theater artists; artists at the outset of their careers or early stages of professional development. Primary consideration is given to artistic excellence and evaluation of the artist’s potential to make an impact on the field.
Scholarships are awarded for tuition assistance for the last year of professional training at a non-profit school located in the United States.
Apprenticeships and fellowships are awarded for artistic compensation for an individual artist (exclusive of benefits) nominated by a professional, non-profit theater company. Nominees may not have worked with the company for more than five years at the time of application.
Apprenticeship applies to an individual who is “learning the trade” under the mentorship of a skilled staff person. The apprentice will work closely with the artistic director or a senior artist on the company’s mainstage production(s) throughout the grant period (e.g., as an assistant director or designer or an actor in a supporting role). The apprenticeship should also include the opportunity for the nominee to do his/her own work in a workshop or second stage venue.
Fellowship applies to an individual artist who will have a substantial relationship with the nominating company. This artist will assume significant responsibilities on one or more production(s) in the company’s mainstage season during the grant period (e.g., director, lead actor, or primary designer on a production). Significant responsibility for a second stage season will also be considered (e.g., director, lead actor, or primary designer).
