Win a Princess Grace Award
This prestigious award is given out to a handful of talented student and professional dancers each year. In addition to the actual award which covers a year's worth of salary or tuition, winners also receive prime networking opportunities and are offered financial assistance for projects and residencies throughout the rest of their career.
Students in pre-professional, not-for-profit dance schools or undergraduate dance departments and professionals who have been a member of their company for less than five years are welcome to enter. Schools and companies may only nominate one dancer per year. The judging panel will choose five or six winners in the dance performance category based on artistic development and potential for future excellence. Student winners receive one year of tuition at their school, and professionals are given one year of salary at the dance company to which they belong. Applications can be found at www.pgfusa.com.
