The R E Ross Trust Playwrights' Script Development Awards
The R E Ross Trust Playwrights' Script Development Awards foster Victoria's theatre industry by helping Victorian writers develop their scripts, with the emphasis on text enhancement rather than production.
These prestigious awards provide writers with grants of between $3000 and $10,000 to enhance their scripts through workshops with a Victorian-based theatre company or group, director or dramaturg.
The R E Ross Trust is a perpetual charitable trust established in Victoria in 1970 by the will of the late Roy Everard Ross. Since its inception, the R E Ross Trust has distributed over $90 million in grants for charitable purposes in Victoria.
