This grant offers up to EUR 4,000 on your personal project in the field of social entrepreneurship with the involvement of the EU or the UK. Make use of it to carry out the project you have been cherishing for a long time. 

We will support you in finding a mentor from the EU, participating in an online conference where you can meet fellows from abroad or designing a training programme for beginners in social entrepreneurship to help them put their business on rails as soon as possible. These are only a few examples out of thousands of initiatives that can be your personal project. 

Study the application guidelines carefully and apply: we are waiting for your inspirational projects. Learn about the pitfalls and ask your question to the grant manager — join the live stream of Facebook on Tuesday 2 November at 16.00.

What is a personal project?
  • A project to become a professional challenge for you. You should get the experience of project management, new skills and acquaintances. 
  • A brand-new project. Not one of the everyday tasks you work on.
  • A project involving the EU or the UK. You can both learn from European colleagues and present them your ideas. 
  • A project with the focus on experience, not profit. You will not get a fee for your work, but you will get a chance to carry out your dream project or advance your skills. 
  • A project that drives you. A course, internship, networking, launch of a new project led and thousands of other initiatives. 

You can check the list of personal projects that we have already supported for some inspiration.
