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.
