The scholarship is established by the Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis draugija.

The M. K. Čiurlionis Scholarship is awarded to Emilija Grigaliūnaitė for the conceptual nature of her work, her unconventional presentation of geographical objects, her attention to Lithuanian lakes and their names, and her original artistic interpretation of the data archiving in the creative project "Unnamed lakes".

The scholarship established by the M. K. Čiurlionis draugija will be awarded this Friday, 8 March, at 2 pm, at the Great Hall of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre during the celebration of the Lithuanian Independence Restoration Day.

The M. K. Čiurlionis Scholarship is awarded from 2020. It is awarded to students whose work and studies, alongside other interests and themes, include a contemporary rethinking of M. K. Čiurlionis' work and the ideals he fostered in the context of Lithuanian and World culture. In previous years, scholarships have been awarded to VAA students Agata Orlovska, Viltė Žumbakytė, Denisas Kolomyckis and Rokas Janušonis.
