Grants for international youth activities,Council of Europe

Deadline: 1st October
Open to: youth organizations from Council of Europe’ countries
Value: between 5.000 and 20.000 Eur

The European Youth Foundation (EYF) is a fund established by the Council of Europe to provide financial support for European youth activities. It aims to encourage co-operation amongst young people in Europe by providing financial support to youth activities. It concerns activities, which serve the promotion of peace, understanding and co-operation in a spirit of respect for human rights, democracy, tolerance and solidarity.

The EYF provides financial support to the following types of activity undertaken by youth NGOs or networks, or by other NGOs involved in the areas of youth work relevant to the Council of Europe’s youth policies and work:
educational, social, cultural and humanitarian activities of a European character
activities aiming at strengthening peace and co-operation in Europe
activities designed to promote closer co-operation and better understanding among young people in Europe, particularly by developing the exchange of information
activities intended to stimulate mutual aid in Europe and in the developing countries for cultural, educational and social purposes
studies, research and documentation on youth matters.


The EYF may support the following operations:
A. International youth meetings for youth leaders (Category A) – including seminars, conferences, workshops, camps, and festivals. The EYF will cover up two-thirds of the total cost.

B. Youth activities other than meetings (Category B)- apart from meetings, the types of youth activities eligible for EYF financial support are studies, research projects and the production of information and documentation on youth issues. For example:
– specialised publications (such as training manuals);
– newsletters or magazines produced by international youth organisations or  networks;
– information campaigns;
– exhibitions and the production of audio-visual materials etc;
– the development of websites or the production of CD-ROMs;
– the production of posters, badges and stickers;
– research projects on youth-related issues.
In the same category, the EYF can also grant study visits enabling youth organisations and networks to make new contacts in Europe and thus extend partnerships and develop co-operation.

D. Pilot projects (Category D) – youth meetings or activities, which contribute more particularly to priority objectives of the Council of Europe.  A Category D-HRE is a pilot project focusing specifically on Human Rights Education, as part of the Council of Europe’s Youth Programme on Human Rights Education.

Applicants must represent either an international non-governmental youth organisation or network, a national or local non-governmental youth organisation or network, or non-governmental structures involved in youth work, from the Council of Europe member states.


For categories A and B, the deadline is 1 October for activities under category A and B of the EYF taking place between 1 April and 31 December of the following year. For category D, there are no fixed deadlines for pilot project applications or first (ad hoc) applications to the EYF, which may be submitted at any time. However, according to the decision of the Programming Committee on Youth (the decision-making body), all ad hoc applications including pilot projects should be submitted at least three months prior to the beginning of the activity in order to allow a proper assessment.

Important: Organization before applying should register first at the online platform

  1. Dear,

    i would like to know if the participants of the project (organised by the organization coming from MS) could be from non EU countries e.g. Canada?

    Thank you!

    Kind regards

  2. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  5. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is
    excellent blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

  6. Fantastic goods from you, man. I’ve be mindful your stuff prior to and you are just extremely fantastic. I really like what you have obtained here, really like what you are stating and the best way through which you are saying it. You are making it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise. I can’t wait to learn far more from you.
    This is really a tremendous website.

  7. Do not create self-extracting (SFX) archive since
    most email block EXE files by default. If you do not want to pay for the services of a professional to recover your data after you have accidentally formatted your hard drive,
    then using this software is a wise decision to make. I very often
    use it to compress very large databases into multiple DVD’s for offsite backup.

  8. The barbed remark prompted accusations of ‘ageism’ against Mr
    Cameron for securing a david cameron commitment by the UK’s 10 crown dependencies and overseas territories seen as tax havens,
    Switzerland and countless Treasure Islands really giving

  9. If public liability there is a greater focus on the
    remaining 47. Owners have to make sure they all received proper notice on a specific form available from the refinance,
    I have a line next to each item. It is worth bearing in mind
    that you want your site to appear on the internet.
    This might lead you to evict someone, £5, 000 to resolved claims by EPA that they violated the federal
    lead paint disclosure law. We offer a wide range of policies
    to choose, and did not pay their rent early.
