Princess Grace Foundation-USA Announces 2010 Princess Grace Awards Applications in Theater, Playwriting, Dance, Choreography, and Film

The Princess Grace Foundation-USA has announced the availability of applications for the 2010 Princess Grace Awards in theater, playwriting, dance performance, choreography, and film. Founded in 1982 in memory of Princess Grace (Kelly) of Monaco, the foundation identifies and assists emerging artists in theater, dance, and film and has awarded grants in excess of $7 million to nearly five hundred individuals nationwide.

Theater awards take the form of scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships. Grants are awarded based on the quality of the emerging artist's past work, his/her potential for future excellence, and the impact the collaboration between the nominating organization and the artist will have on the individual's artistic growth. The Playwriting Award includes a residency at New Dramatists, Inc. and the opportunity for the winning play to be licensed and published by Samuel French, Inc. (Deadline: March 31, 2010.)

Dance performance awards take the form of scholarships and fellowships. Awards are based on the applicant's artistic merit, significance of the award to current artistic development, and the potential for future excellence and impact on the field. Choreography awards offer emerging choreographers the opportunity to create a new work with organizations with which they have little experience. (Deadline: April 30, 2010.)

Film scholarships, awarded to both undergraduate and graduate students, are by invitation only. Approved university, college, and school film programs are invited to submit applicants via their department chairs or deans. Film scholarships provide funding toward the filmmaker's thesis project. (A complete list of accepted schools is available at the foundation's Web site.) (Deadline: June 1, 2010.)

All applicants must be U.S. citizens or have permanent resident status at the time of application. Additionally, all applicants (except playwriting) must be nominated by a nonprofit organization (school or company) with which they will be affiliated during the grant period (September 2010 to August 2011.)

Full guidelines and applications are available at the foundation's Web site.
