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 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.
A mobility grant is your ticket to whatever professional event in Europe 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.
We open calls for grants in culture and creative industries and education twice a year; for grants in health, social entrepreneurship, media and youth work — at least once a year. Follow the programme page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when your call opens.
It is for trips designed by you
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 any valuable idea, boosting your career, and creating ties with EU colleagues.
It is for everyone in the six sectors we support
We issue 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 head of a city's cultural department, all have equal chances in receiving a grant.
It is for outstanding ideas, even if they do not meet our restrictions
We have restrictions: the mobility grant covers a single trip to one country for no longer than four weeks. However, we can always 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.
