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 moral encouragement to focus on artistic excellence; monetary support for the nominating organizations eases fund raising challenges, directing resources toward the creative process. 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. To read more about discipline-specific guidelines, please visit the website.
