The AACM Scholarship Program had been dormant for many years until one of the community’s long-term students decided to try to turn it around. Because of their committed funding, we have been able to garner renewed interest in the scholarships as other members have stepped in to dedicate their donations to fund this very necessary program.
These Scholarships were created to provide funding to students showing great promise and dedication in the art of North Indian classical music. The scholarships range from partial to full coverage of tuition for a two-month course, totaling eight classes. The classes are taught by Alam Khan, son of the late legendary Sarode Maestro Ali Akbar Khan, and our Tabla master Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri.
The Scholarship Program is available to students all over the world through online classes, as well as those wishing to study in person at the Ali Akbar College of Music in Marin County, CA. Students must be at an intermediate-advanced level to apply. We welcome students of all instruments as long as they are technically efficient enough to learn the music on their given instrument.
Please consider directly funding the AACM Scholarship Program. Your support can make a big difference in the life of a future Indian Classical musician!
