Travel Grants to India

INTACH offers travel scholarships to India for UK citizens. The grants are for educational study visits to India in the field of art and cultural heritage.  The aim is to allow UK citizens to undertake research and gain professional experience through projects or work placements.  Most grants are awarded to professionals in the early stages of their career, or to students.  Senior travel grants are also available.

"The scholarship has greatly influenced my understanding of Ladakh's vernacular architecture.  Without it I would not have been able to return to Ladakh to gather the critical information required and there would be no dissertation.  For that I am immensely grateful"    

The Scholarship helped me in my pursuit of learning the art of Indian miniature painting.  It was a hugely beneficial experience, where many new skills, techniques and cultural insights were exchanged.  The trip has greatly informed and inspired my work.  I learnt such a lot from the master miniaturists Ajay and Vanita Sharma.
