The Princess Margareta of Romania Foundation announces the debut of this year's edition of the Young Talents program and the names of the 30 new scholarship holders in the music and visual arts category.They are young artists who study at vocational education institutions in the country, and who come from low-income families. The Young Talentsprogram will provide support to pursue and develop an artistic career, by granting scholarships, intergenerational mentoring sessions and masterclasses, as well as by promoting their artistic activities.

Since 2008, The Princess Margareta of Romania Foundation has created equal opportunities for talented Romanians, providing complex support that contributes to the development and exploitation of their talent.The Young Talents scholarships are awarded to young people aged between 14 and 24, who study at high schools and universities with a musical and artistic profile in Romania, and whose financial situation limits them in fulfilling their true potential and artistic expression.

The application files were submitted between November and December 2020, when 156 young people expressed their intention to become scholarship holders.The selection process consisted of the analysis of the submitted files, the selection of candidates by the jury, online interviews and social surveys.The evaluation of the portfolio by the jury (composed of personalities from the artistic and academic environment), represented the decisive stage, after which the best 30 candidates were selected, depending on the talent and artistic potential demonstrated.Among the young people admitted to the program, there are 4 alumni scholarship holders. These are former , who will continue their training, but who will also have the role of mentors for the new fellows, by sharing their own experience gained within the program.

The list of the 15 young musicians and 15 visual artists who have become the scholarship holders of the Young Talents 2021 program can be consulted at aici.

The Princess Margareta of Romania Foundation would like to thank the members of the jury for their involvement and support:

Music Category: Verona Maier - pianist, Rafael Butaru - violinist, Emil Vișenescu - clarinetist, Tiberiu Soare - conductor, Sorin Rotaru - percussionist, Teodor Ilincăi - tenor.

Visual arts Category: professor Carmen Apetrei - graphic artist, Virgil Scripcariu - sculptor, Ileana Dana Marinescu - visual artist, university professor Daniela Constantin - painter. Sergiu Chihaia - visual artist.

Romania loses every year dozens of talented young people who, due to the lack of material possibilities, cannot develop their talent and do not benefit from real chances to assert themselves. The Young Talents program contributes to their artistic development, through financial support, intergenerational mentoring sessions and promotion actions, which also include the online environment.For The Young Talents scholarship holders, the program is an essential step in their evolution, an opportunity for knowledge and artistic exploration, but also the opportunity to interact with nationally and internationally recognized people of culture, who can guide them in their careers.
