Attakkalari- The Inlaks India Foundation Scholarship

Attakkalari and Inlaks seek to synergise their respective strengths and resources to focus on supporting an initiative that advances a common goal — providing internationally reputed training opportunities to talented and deserving youth who might otherwise be unable to afford it. Under this initiative, talented performing artists — particularly dance and movement artists— who wish to get comprehensive professional training of international standards will win a rare opportunity to earn a qualification from Attakkalari. The scheme aims to provide crucial support to dance artists who are talented, passionate and committed but have to curtail their dream due to financial constraints.


Number of scholarships available: This year, the Attakkalari Inlaks Foundation Scholarship will be offered to TWO eligible candidates from India who are offered admission to the Attakkalari Certificate Programme in Movement Arts and Pedagogy through the selection process.


Scope: The scholarship will cover the Rs.1,00,000 tuition fees for the six months program and provide a sum of Rs. 1,50,000 for the student to cover their living expenses in Bangalore.


Eligibility: Potential candidates from India who clear the auditions for the Attakkalari Certificate Course in Movement Arts and Pedagogy can apply for the scholarship. The applications will be scrutinised and assessed based on a predefined process.


Note: One must have successfully cleared the audition for the course before applying for the scholarship.
