Grants to USA, Canada, and International individual artists and teams of artists to showcase their work and further their creative endeavors. Funds will be granted on an unrestricted basis to emerging musical theater artists, including composers, lyricists, and librettists who are creating new, fully producible stage works.

The grants do not honor a specific piece or project.

Grant awards are based on merit and are intended for those artists with a demonstrated commitment and dedication to a career in musical theatre. Further, the grants are not intended to be scholarships, and artists applying for grants should be working professionally in the field.
