Scholarships to financial by constrained students
In our endeavour to assist in the development of musical talent, we make arrangements for free training and organise scholarships. In the last 25 years Sangeet Piyasi has awarded Scholarships of two year duration to students of various disciplines of music. The scholarships are given to students between 12 and 15 years of age. These students are chosen on merit after a transparent and fair scanning of their performances by renowned Gurus and stalwarts in the respective disciplines.
we help financially constrained artists of yesteryear too and have been doing so for the last 25 years.
Sangeet Piyasi, since its inception has felicitated a number of great musicians and artists of the country like Padma Vibhushan late Pt. Kishen Maharaj, late Pt. Shyamal Bose, late Pt. shankar Ghosh, late Pt. V. C. Jog, late Pt. A. Kanan & late Smt. Malavika Kanan, late Shri V. Balsara, pt. Vijay Kichlu and many others.
