In 2020, for the second year, the Claudia Corrieri Literary Prize, a scholarship fund, will be awarded to actors, playwrights and screenwriters at two institutions: Manhattan's Barrow Group Theater Company and School and Brooklyn's Terry Knickerbocker Studio. The grants, valued at $1,500 each, will help fund writing classes to be selected at the student's discretion at both schools.

The awards were established in 2019 by Claudia Corrieri, who is herself an actor / singer-songwriter, to encourage emerging writers to grow and challenge themselves. The grants do not favor any performance discipline or genre. At Barrow Group Theater Company and School, where diverse classes are offered, students may enroll in classes in playwriting, screenwriting, writing for TV and writing for actors.
