  • Scholarship Description
  • 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.

    Application Components:
    -Playwriting resume listing short, one-act and full-length plays written including reading, workshop and production history with performance venues and dates
    -One unpublished full-length play
    -Personal statement: Please describe, in your own words, your views and expectations of your role as a theater artist now and in the future. Please elaborate on your "emerging status" and how you plan to utilize this fellowship

Good Afternoon, I'm currently enrolled in the 4 week summer program at New York Film Academy. I'm also attending the school next fall. I wasn't sure if I could apply for this scholarship because I'm a acting/Film student. What would be my requirements if I could apply? My apologies, my name is Shadai Terry. I live in New London, ct I'm 26. I'm finally going back to school, thank god! I attended in 08' Eastern Connecticut State University right after high school. My mother had 2 of my siblings and I in school at the same time due to the lack of funds I wasn't able to finish . So I kept waiting and praying when will it be the right time to go back to school. Honestly, it's never a right time so I decided to audition for New York Film Academy on Jan 29,2016 and I GOT IN!!! I start in May for the 4 weeks summer program which is 3,500. Just for tuition, that's not room and board included. I started looking up scholarships and grants for the summer and fall. I would like to apply to this scholarship but I'm not sure if I can.

While forty percent of 18- to 29-year-olds say they will "definitely vote" in the midterm elections, "doesn't mean they'll actually cast a ballot on Election Day." Here are a few of the issues in higher education on which voters will have a say: [...]
