Cultural Talent Search Scholarship Scheme 2017-18

Sunday, Nov 27 - 2016 | By Akshaya Sahoo

The Cultural Talent Search Scholarship Scheme aims at providing facilities to outstanding young children to develop their talents in various artistic fields. Children in the age group of 10 to 14 years studying either in recognized schools or belonging to families practicing traditional art forms are eligible for the scholarship. 

In 1982, the Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) took over the Cultural Talent Search Scholarship Scheme from the Ministry of Culture, Government of India in which initially 100 talented students in the field of arts and crafts were identified from all parts of the country and provided with scholarship. Considering the vastness of this country and the talent that is available, the scholarship was increased from 100 to 300 each year from 1984. 

The Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) provides the total number of fresh scholarships to be awarded every year will be 620, of which 100 scholarships are exclusively reserved for Tribal Culture (those who possess a valid ‘ST’ certificate issued by the Competent Authority) and 125 are reserved for children of families practicing traditional performing & visual arts, etc. and 20 for Differently Abled (Specially Challenged) children. The remaining 375 scholarships will be treated as general scholarships. 

Basis of Selection - The scholarship awarded under the Scheme is initially for two years and is renewable after every two years till the completion of the first University degree stage of education or up to the age of 20 years whichever is earlier subject to the awardees maintaining good progress.
