Departures and Arrivals



PARTS Scholarships 2014-2015

The PARTS programmes are not part of the regular education system, so the participants don’t have access to regular scholarship systems of EU member states. Participation in the PARTS programmes (registration and tuition fees) is expensive, especially if one has to come from abroad and install oneself in Brussels for two or three years. Nevertheless, PARTS wants to select only on the basis of talent, not people’s ability to pay for higher studies. Therefore, candidates are never asked about their financial situation during or during the audition, and schoalrships can only be requested after one has been accepted as a student.

The goal of the grant system of [DNA] DEPARTURES AND ARRIVALS is to remove the financial barriers for talented youngsters to participate in the training program of PARTS or in the Research Studios.

A study grant from the [DNA] project will be allocated on the basis of three parameters: family situation, individual study budget, study support acquired elsewhere.

In 2014-2015, 48 students are enrolled in the 2nd year of the Training Cycle in PARTS. 22 of them receive a [DNA] scholarship, raging bewteen 1.000 and 9.000 euro, for a total of 98.000 euro. These 22 students come from 21 different countries.

In the Research Studios Pilot #1 (February-June 2015), 5 students are active. 4 of them receive a scholarship, between 1.000 and 4.400 euro.
