We will select 20 talented new fellows each year until 2020 and you should not miss your chance!
The fellows have a unique opportunity to take part in trainings and other capacity building activities, as well as implement individual projects of up to EUR 5,000. In addition, the fellows become part of an international network of like-minded individuals and have the opportunity to attend various high-level meetings and interact with decision-makers in their countries, as well as those from the EU institutions.
Today the network of fellows comprises 40 young people (25 women and 15 men) aged between 20 and 36 from the six EaP countries. Their Fellowship actions cover a range of priority areas addressing the needs of local communities: youth work, leadership development, anti-corruption actions, capacity-building for CSOs, development of policy papers, educational materials and e-tools for better governance and many more.
If you want to find out who our current fellows are and what they are doing, please visit the fellows’ webpage available here.
