The Princess Grace Awards are dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging artists who are at the outset of their careers or at early stages of professional development. Nominations for theater grants are invited from the artistic directors of theater companies and the deans or department chairs of professional schools in theater.

Theater grants are made in the following three areas:

  1. Scholarships for tuition assistance for the last year of professional training at a nonprofit school located in the United States
  2. Apprenticeships for salary assistance for an individual artist nominated by a theater company who is "learning the trade" under the mentorship of a skilled staff person
  3. Fellowships for salary assistance for an individual artist who has a substantial relationship with the nominating company

Because MU is limited to one application for each of the three areas above, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, February 8, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) the category in which you plan to apply (scholarship, apprenticeship, or fellowship); 2) a description of the item(s) you will submit for review; and 3) a draft of your “personal statement” as outlined in the guidelines at



Awards typically range from $5,000 to $25,000. Scholarships are awarded to students through schools and are commensurate with tuition costs.
