Princess Grace Awards in Dance, Theater, and Film
Princess Grace Awards in Dance, Theater, and Film offers scholarships to students enrolled full-time in a dance, theater or film program. Ten to twelve scholarships are awarded annually.

Students applying for a dance scholarship must have completed one year of college. Students in theater may apply for the scholarship in their final year of undergraduate college or in graduate school. Students studying film must be in a thesis program before applying.

The scholarships are funded by the Princess Grace Foundation, established in 1982 by Prince Rainier III of Monaco in memory of Princess Grace (Kelly). The purpose of the scholarship awards is to recognize young, emerging students pursuing careers in theater, dance and film. Since the foundation's beginning, 600 students nationwide have received scholarships totalling more than $8.5 million.

Grace Kelly grew up in Philadelphia and attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Her career included modeling, television, broadway and theater. But her fame quickly rose as she proved herself an accomplished actress whose movies in the 1950's made her a glamourous, unforgettable movie star. She married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956.

The deadline for this scholarship VARIES, and the award amount is usually $5,000 - $25,000.
