The Princess Grace Awards is a national program dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging young theater, dance, and film artists who are at the outset of their careers or at early stages of professional development. This mission is accomplished in playwriting through a grant and residency program at New Dramatists, Inc. in New York City. The awardee's script will be included in New Dramatists' lending library, and the script will be distributed nationally to catalogue subscribers for one year.

Emerging playwrights who have not had any professional productions are eligible. Published plays, one-acts, and adaptations are not eligible.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, February 2, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) a personal statement as discussed in the award guidelines; 2) a synopsis of the unproduced, unpublished full-length play which will be submitted; and 3) a one-page resume or biographical sketch of the applicant.


The awardee receives a grant for $7,500 and a residency (including transportation costs). Also, the awardee will be represented and published by Samuel French, Inc.
