The Ethno Mobility program is one of the largest worldwide scholarship programs for 𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗸, 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗻𝘀 ages 30 and below, supporting the participation of young musicians at eligible Ethno camps by covering for the expenses of travel, visas and participation fees. Ethno Mobility grant scholarships aim to provide the opportunity to attend an Ethno to musicians who would not be able to do so without 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁, even in the case of an Ethno in close geographical proximity. If you are a musician 𝗮𝗴𝗲𝗱 𝟭𝟳 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝘂𝗽 𝘁𝗼 (and including) 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝟯𝟬, and you are looking for a scholarship to participate at an Ethno, you have come to the right place! 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗻𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗹𝘆: Australia, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Macedonia, Malawi, Mozambique, New Zealand, Norway, State Of Palestine, Poland, Portugal, Solomon Islands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, UK and USA. *Applications from legal residents in the above countries are accepted and will be vetted for conformance with grant criteria, with the exception of USA — US applications for international Mobility are open to US passport holders only. *Passport holders from the eligible countries above living elsewhere can apply — upload proof of your legal residence in the country you are currently residing in. 𝗖𝗥𝗜𝗧𝗘𝗥𝗜𝗔 The Ethno Mobility grant program is based on two important criteria: 1. 𝗜𝗻𝗰𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗶𝘁𝘆 — In order to offer a Mobility scholarship to the greatest number of young musicians possible, 𝘀𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗮𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗿 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻. If you already received a scholarship from Ethno Mobility to travel to an Ethno in the past in the period 2019-2022, you are NOT eligible to apply for this call. 2. 𝗕𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 — Gender balance, cultural balance, balance between musical instruments and styles — this balance is maintained by the JMI Head Office coordinating Mobility placements with all Ethnos. This is why 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗘𝘁𝗵𝗻𝗼: if you are selected, Ethno Mobility will contact you with a placement offer that matches your musical profile. Exceptionally, due consideration will be given to early applicants, i.e. those applicants that request for placements at specific Ethnos that are ideally six months ahead. Such requests must also be motivated — why is attending those Ethnos is important for you. Put any such requests in the last question in the application form. The JMI Head Office coordinating Mobility placements will revert with an offer to those applications that are accepted, which may or may not be to the requested Ethno.
