The Young Scholars Fund has been established by the International Council for Traditions of Music and Dance to promote the involvement of young scholars in its activities, including World Conferences, Symposia, Colloquia, and Fora.

Young scholars are not limited to those of a certain age range, but are individuals at the beginning of their academic careers. They may be students currently enrolled in university studies or recent graduates. Preference will be given to scholars for whom other sources of funding are not available.
