UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries: The UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Programme promote the mobility of young artists in order to enrich their personal perspectives, to develop their creative project, enabling them to engage in a cultural diversity dialogue.

The Programme offers residencies to young artists (between 25 and 35 years old) worldwide. 

The Aschberg Bursaries Programme gives priority to artists and institutions in developing countries, in order to enhance North-South and South-South cooperation.

The bursaries are intended for professional artists and writers wishing to enrich their careers by acquiring experience abroad.

UNESCO-Aschberg advocates and promotes creativity, highlights cultural exchanges and the need for artists to enrich their experience through contact with other cultures.

These residencies are catalysts for the development of artistic expression in all cultures of the world.

The bursaries are limited and are awarded on a selective basis. The pre-selection of candidates is carried out by the institutions. Artists must therefore apply directly to the institution of their interest, depending on the discipline and/orcountry sought. 

The application file is to be submitted directly to the institution of interest.
