The 2013 Princess Grace Awards winners represent 24 colleges, universities, and not-for-profit theater and dance companies throughout the United States. The Awards winners exemplify both classical and experimental artistic disciplines and, while still considered emerging talent, already show exceptional promise in their areas of expertise. The Foundation’s support assists their theater and dance studies, helps pay their artistic fees at non-profit theater and dance companies and helps support their thesis film projects. In addition to the Awards, the Princess Grace Foundation-USA extends general operating monies to companies hosting an Awards winner. 2013 marks the second year of the Princess Grace JustFilms Documentary Awards with the generous support of the Ford Foundation. These Awards assist social justice documentary filmmakers who represent and give voice to Indigenous Peoples of the Americas. In total, the Foundation is awarding more than $1million to artists this year.
