Congrats to IMA student Megan Rossman winner of a Princess Grace Award 2017 Graduate Film Scholarship.
The funds will be used to help her complete her thesis film documentary Lesbian Herstory Archives: A Brief Herstory.

The Princess Grace Foundation-USA is dedicated to identifying and assisting emerging talent in theater, dance, and film by awarding grants in the form of scholarships, apprenticeships, and fellowships.

The Lesbian Herstory Archives was founded in the 1970’s when a group of women involved in the Gay Academic Union realized that lesbian history was “disappearing as quickly as it was being made.” The group’s mission is to gather and preserve records of lesbian lives and activities so that future generations will have ready access to materials relevant to their lives.
