The Government will invite applications every year and shortlist meritorious students based on either their performance or interview that will be conducted by the Expert Committee set up by the Ministry for awarding scholarships.

The government provides about 400 scholarships every year to a group of young artists that belong to the age group of 18-25 years. A sum of Rs. 5,000 is offered to the students per month for a period of two years. The government has not slotted the scholarship in art-wise or state-wise quota.
