The Ethno Mobility program is one of the largest worldwide scholarship programs for 𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗸, 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗻𝘀 aged 16-30, supporting the participation of eligible musicians at Ethno camps by covering for the expenses of travel and participation fees. Visa costs are additionally covered, where required in order to attend the Ethno for which the grant has been awarded. Ethno Mobility grant scholarships aim to provide those musicians the opportunity to attend an Ethno who would not be able to do so without 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁, even in the case of an Ethno in close geographical proximity. Therefore, please consider this when deciding to apply — do you really need financial support in order to participate at an Ethno? If the answer is yes, you have come to the right place!

𝗖𝗥𝗜𝗧𝗘𝗥𝗜𝗔 The Ethno Mobility grant program is based on these important criteria: 1.
