Application Fees and Benefits
The IndianRaga Fellowship selection process offers a range of benefits to help candidates better understand their strengths and weaknesses – feedback from an international panel of experts is embedded into the process. The application fee covers not only the time spent by an international panel of experts to evaluate applications carefully, but also detailed time-stamp based feedback (For Rounds 2 and 3) to candidates who do not advance to the next level. Please read below to understand the benefits of participating in the IndianRaga Fellowship Selection Process:
Please note that the overall application fee from past seasons has now been split into two halves. All applicants have to pay the Round 1 application fee. Only those shortlisted for Round 2 will have to pay the remaining amount.
Application Fee: Non-refundable
Early Cycle Application: $50
Regular Cycle Application: $75
Round 2 (both cycles): $100
Note: If you are applying for multiple categories, you can get 20% discount for second and subsequent categories. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for coupon code.
What does this include:
1. If you become an IndianRaga Fellow, we spend several thousands of dollars per applicant on the Fellowship productions and collaboration.
2. If you reach Round 3 and do not become a Fellow, you will be offered the opportunity to directly enter into Round 2 of next IndianRaga Fellowship. Also you will be offered 25% discount on the application fee for that Fellowship.
3. If you advance to Round 2 and do not get invited to Round 3, you will be able to take any ONE Beginner level (Levels 1-3) of the IndianRaga Certification (Cost $100) entirely free. Please read rules and details at indianraga.com/certification. IN ADDITION, you will get detailed time-stamp based feedback on your Round 2 traditional entry by an expert panel so that you get some insights on what you can do to get better.
Selected Fellows will have to pay a non-refundable Program fee of $250 to part cover the Fellowship Expenses
Selected Fellows will have to pay a refundable deposit of $300 to participate in the Fellowship Program. This amount will be refunded after all the post production activities are complete. Fellows will forfeit this deposit if they fail to continue in the Fellowship Program for reasons other than immigration and visa issues.
