International Mobility Grants
We believe in the importance of professional and creative exchange between Ukraine and the EU with its power to open new horizons, create professional networks, inspire ideas, and even projects. However, travelling to international events can be costly, especially for citizens of small towns in remote regions of Ukraine. To allow you to experience professional exchange, we launched our International Mobility Grants. We expect you to gain hands-on experience and share it with your environment. This way, we can bolster social and economic development of Ukrainian society.
The International Mobility Grant is your ticket to a professional event in the EU you desire to attend. You can go to conferences and traineeships, meet leading experts and fellow colleagues, do research and present ideas, and even work on individual and cooperative projects. You do not have to worry about money as we will take care of the costs. You will receive a grant from EUR 2,000 to EUR 4,000, depending on the duration of your stay, to cover the expenses.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the limitations on travelling to the EU, we temporarily discontinued the programme. We monitor the situation and as soon as travelling is safe will launch new open calls. Follow this page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know the updates.
This is for trips designed by you
International Mobility Grants are all about you. This is why we only fund individual trips and let you decide on the itinerary. You design the journey from A to Z for it to address your professional needs. We will endorse a valuable idea, boosting your career, and creating ties with EU colleagues.
This is for professionals in the six sectors we support
We issue International Mobility Grants for professionals in culture and creative industries, education, health, social entrepreneurship, media, and youth. What matters to us is not your title, but a thought-out itinerary and strong motivation. If you are a teacher at a rural school or the university professor, all have equal chances in receiving a grant.
This is for outstanding ideas, even if they do not meet our restrictions
We have restrictions; the International Mobility Grant covers a single trip to one country for no longer than four weeks. However, we can make an exception if you have a good mobility idea and sound reasoning. Mention it in your application, and we will see what we can do.
This is for you!
We are all over Ukraine
