IOTPD Philippe Braunschweig Grant

The IOTPD is a network of organizations that is dedicated to offering professional dancers the resources & the support they need when it comes to moving into a new career.
OTPD Philippe Braunschweig
Due to the very nature of the profession many dancers have international careers. Because of their scattered careers these dancers may not meet the eligibility criteria of any one country in order to receive a retraining grant through one of the established transitions centres.
As a tribute to its founder the IOTPD has created the annual for retraining.
This grant is meant for professional dancers who have had an international career and who don’t qualify for support from any one of the countries where they have danced.
GRANT AMOUNT: Up to € 3000 will be available each year. This amount may be awarded in whole or in part depending on the need.
The dancer must:
  • Not qualify for transition/retraining support from any one of the countries where he/she has danced
  • Be ending his/her performance career or have ended it within a 12 month period prior to applying for the IOTPD Philippe Braunschweig Grant
