ICDS is committed to internationality. As part of this, we aim to make the event financially accessible, especially to those on lower incomes, living in emerging economies or from countries where Dalcroze Eurhythmics only has an embryonic presence. 


In 2015, the conference committees decided to establish a suite of modest bursaries. These have been made possible by one-off gifts from donors, each of whose names the conference will honour in perpetuity by setting aside funds for each future event. 


For those who need support to attend…


If you would like to apply for a bursary, please download the application form and email it, with a reference, to info@dalcroze-studies.com by: deadline to be confirmed.

For those who don’t need support…!


Can you or your organisation help a conference delegate? Would you like a bursary to be named after someone special? 


The ICDS committees wish to increase the number and size of bursaries for future conferences. If you would like to help someone else to attend a Dalcroze Studies conference, please contact info@dalcroze-studies.com with ‘donation’ in the subject box.


Donations start at €350. 


A bursary may be anonymous at the donor’s discretion.


Thank you.
