Algeria/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.3 Grants, awards, scholarships

The state allocates part of the budget earmarked for the cultural sector to training programs, grants and rewards. One of these rewards are the President of the Republic "Ali Maashi" Reward, which is granted annually in all fields of creativity. There are also rewards granted in various cultural events, art events and festivals.

In addition to state support to public and independent cultural institutions working in art production, some artists benefit from short- and long-term scholarships (often overseas). 24 artists have already benefited from the 2008-2009 scholarships, in addition to the workshops and training sessions periodically conducted on local and national levels.
