Fiddler Scholarship

Each year the Tällberg Foundation awards a scholarship to a young musician from the region of Dalarna.

The purpose is to help promising young folk musicians finance a journey to the USA where he or she has the opportunity to meet and play with Swedish-American folk musicians.

The winner is selected by the board of Dalarnas Spelmansförbund (Dalarna’s Fiddlers Association) which is chaired by Pontus Selderman.
