Princess Grace Foundation-USA Offers Support for Emerging Artists in Theater, Dance, and Film

[Another opportunity that has crossed my desk... might be of interest.]

The Princess Grace Foundation-USA has announced the availability of applications for the 2009 Princess Grace Awards in Theater, Playwriting, Dance Performance, Choreography, and Film. Founded in 1982, the foundation is dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging artists in theater, dance, and film, and has awarded grants totaling over $5 million to nearly 500 individuals across the United States. Deadlines vary, beginning March 31, 2009. Award amounts generally range from $5,000 to $25,000 each, based upon expenses for annual salary or artistic fee, tuition, or thesis project costs. All award 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 2009 to August 2010).
