Princess Grace Foundation-USA Seeks Nominations for 2016 Theater Awards Program
Princess Grace Foundation-USA

The Princess Grace Foundation-USA is dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging theater, dance, and film artists who are at the beginning of their careers or an early stage of professional development. The foundation is currently inviting nominations for its 2016 Theater Grants Program.

The annual program offers financial assistance in the categories of Scholarships and Apprenticeships and Fellowships.

1) Scholarships: Tuition assistance will be awarded for the last year of professional training at a nonprofit school located in the United States. Grants are based on tuition costs only; no other expenses (i.e., room and board, materials, books, etc.) may be included.

2) Apprenticeships and Fellowships: Financial compensation will be provided for an individual artist (exclusive of benefits) nominated by a professional, nonprofit theater company. Nominees may not have worked with the company for more than five years at the time of application. The strength of the partnership between the company and the artist is taken into serious consideration during the adjudication process.

To be eligible to nominate an individual artist, the professional nonprofit theater company must employ professional artistic and administrative staff; have been in continuous operation as a nonprofit professional theater company for a minimum of three years; and have held a total of twenty weeks of rehearsal and performances for the current and previous three years. In addition, the theater must have demonstrated an ability to raise public and other private funds.

See the Princess Grace Foundation-USA website for complete program guidelines and nomination instructions.
