British Council announces Creative Economies Scholarships for students & young professionals

The British Council has announced a new Creative Economies Scholarship programme under which, the Council will provide 10 scholarships to students and young professionals from India to pursue postgraduate studies at four UK universities that provide culture policy and arts management programmes. Applicants interested in this programme may apply for the scholarship directly with the four participating universities which include King’s College London, University of Glasgow, Birmingham City University, and Goldsmiths University of London.

Research conducted by the British Council, FICCI, and the Art X company shows that due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, 16% of the creative economy sector in India has permanently closed. Therefore it is critical that the creative sector is strengthened through long-term government policy and arts management skills. The Creative Economies Scholarship programme offers the opportunity to individuals to develop skills as leaders, managers and policymakers of the future.
