Deadline extension: Fellowships for civil society activists from Eastern Neighbourhood
January 17, 2020.
The deadline for applying for the 2020 Eastern Partnership Civil Society Fellowship Programme has been extended until 20 January. The programme is aimed at young civil society activists from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, who have ideas about improving their communities or countries, and want to develop their leadership skills.
The programme has been announced by the EU-funded project Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility (EaP CSF).
The fellows will have a unique opportunity to take part in training sessions and other capacity building activities, as well as to implement individual projects of up to euro 5,000. In addition, the young activists will become part of an international network of like-minded individuals. They will have the opportunity to attend various high-level meetings, and interact with decision-makers from their countries and EU institutions.
More information about the call.
EaP CSF helps to create synergies between the various bilateral and regional initiatives for civil society, and contributes to the replication and sustainability of their results. It accompanies the EU’s financial support to activities carried out by civil society organisations, which are crucial actors in pushing forward reforms in the Eastern partner countries and advancing the achievement of the Eastern Partnership deliverables.
