The Sanskriti Pratishthan invites applications for
its annual Sanskriti - Kalakriti Fellowship in Performing
Arts from young performing artists who wish to contribute
towards enriching their respective art form. The scheme
will be managed by the Sanskriti Pratishthan, which has
been giving similar awards over the past 25 years.
The Fellowship is only open to Indian Nationals in
the age group of 25 to 40.
While this fellowship specially encourages women applicants,
all proposals that further the
objectives of the program are welcome. The candidate should
have at least ten years of initial training in Indian
classical dance. The fellow would be required to have
given at least 2 3 solo performances to his/her credit
in recognized forums.
The candidate will be required to take guidance from another
senior guru and enhance the existing style. It would be
a residency programme for a period of three months, which
can be spread over the period of ten months. This will
require the candidate to take consent from her current
guru and the guru he/she would want to go to.
The purpose of the Fellowship is to encourage young
artists to develop their potential and enhance their skills
through intensive practice and or incorporating different
facets of their art.
The duration of the Fellowship will be ten months. The
grant of Rs. 50,000 will be given in two installments.
The first installment of Rs 25,000/- will be given at
the commencement of the fellowship programme and a short
mid-term progress report will be required.
The second installment will be given after the submission
of your complete project report
when the fellow may be requested to give a dance recital.
The applicant will have to sign an agreement with
Sanskriti Pratishthan pertaining to a
