The Scholarship Programme is a 5 week residency taking place every year in July - August in Vienna within the frame of ImPulsTanz festival. The Programme offers around 65 young professional dancers and choreographers from mainly European but also from non European countries the possibility to take part in an intense multinational further training programme.

The programme focuses on the exchange of ideas and knowledge, not limited by national borders, on concentrated further training, on meeting with internationally renowned artists gathering in Vienna at ImPulsTanz with the aim to orient the career of the participants.

In order to achieve both its educational and artistic goals, the Scholarship Programme is supervised each year by artistic mentors selected amongst dance personalities who have played a decisive part on an international level in the development of contemporary dance in recent years.

The danceWEB Scholarship Programme 2011 will take place from July 13 to August 17, 2011. It is a part of the project Jardin d’Europe, which is based on the success story of the innovative European contemporary dance project, danceWEB-Europe

Each scholarship within the frame of Jardin d'Europe is cofinanced by the European Commission (Culture 2007-2013 programme), by Austrian funding bodies and by local funding from the home country of the nominee (but no private persons as sponsors). This last part is not yet secured in all countries. Therefore the applicants are encouraged (in cooperation with the Jardin d'Europe office) to look for possible funding institutions in their home countries. It is a good idea to check the former danceWEBers from your home country and where they received funding from.

Depending on the available sources of financing, 1 or 2 participants per country are selected from countries of the European Union. In addition, a total of 15-20 participants from Central and Eastern European countries as well as a small number from other regions of the world (Africa, South-East Asia, North/South America, Australia) are selected each year.

The application deadline is December 15, 2010, CET, noon. The application form can be found here
