  • 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.

    One fellowship is offered annually to an individual playwright, including residency at New Dramatists and opportunity for winning play to be licensed and published by Samuel French, Inc.

    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    -One unpublished full-length play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
    -Encouraged to submit a letter of recommendation

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.
