Dear passengers from (or currently residing in) Berlin, this program we warmly recommend to you:
The Musicboard Berlin provides scholarships and residencies to pop musicians who made Berlin their main place of residence and work. The applicants’ country of origin is irrelevant. Musicians who have already attracted attention through their outstanding creative performance and professionalism are eligible for application. A Musicboard scholarship is a personalised funding for a limited period of a musician who, by the realisation of a new musical idea or project, aims to develop his/her artistic and creative abilities and professional skills. This may be the case for instance when working on a single subject, the preparation or implementation of projects or productions not being possible to realise without public funding. A scholarship is limited to three, maximum six month. The amount is not fixed and will be granted depending on each application and the decision of the jury. Applicants have to attach a finance plan justifying the requested amount. While being granted a scholarship it is possible to work in Berlin or go on a self-organised stay abroad. The applicant must state her or his desired place of work in the application.
