In the early sixties the Swedish philanthropists Olof and Siri Aschberg donated a mansion located in Ile-de-France to UNESCO. The mansion was sold in 1992, and in memory of the donors and in conformity with the spirit of the couple's gift, UNESCO decided to invest the sum resulting from the sale and to allocate the totality of the interest received to the creation of the UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists.
The UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists programme was thus established in 1994 to open new career prospects to young artists and provide them with the possibility for further training in specialised institutions.
Since its creation, the number of applications received and fellowships granted has increased regularly. Hundreds of young artists have already benefited from the programme. For 2005/2006, the program proposes 62 fellowships offered by 50 partner institutions in 30 countries.
The fellowships are co-financed by the International Fund for the Promotion of Culture (IFPC) and an international network of partner institutions specialised in the training of artists. The IFPC was created in November 1974 during the 18th session of UNESCO's General Conference, and has developed into a financial fund that supports cultural development projects all over the world. Its aim is to help creators and cultural entrepreneurs to find additional funds for their projects so that cultural diversity could profit from globalisation instead of being its victim.
