Applications Open for European Youth Foundation’s Structural Grant!

Deadline: 1 October 2017

The European Youth Foundation (EYF) is a fund established in 1972 by the Council of Europe to provide financial and educational support for European youth activities. The foundation is accepting applications for its Structural Grants that are grants for general administrative costs incurred by youth NGOs.

Grant Categories

The EYF offers two types of structural grants:

Structural grant for 2 consecutive years

  • These grants are available every 2 years and are only accessible to international youth NGOs and international networks of youth NGOs that have received support for at least 3 international activities during the 3 previous years (EYF grant or study session in the annual programme of the European Youth Centres). However, the grant needs to be confirmed after 1 year. The grant is based on strategic long-term programme of the organisation.
  • The maximum grant allocated is € 25,000 per year for 2 years (i.e. a maximum of €50,000 for 2 years).
  • The EYF budget available is € 630,000 for each of the two years.

One-off structural grant

  • The one-off grant is non-renewable. It can be applied for by regional networks of youth NGOs aiming to establish a European co-ordination body. NGOs must have received support for at least 3 international activities during the 3 previous years (EYF grant or study session in the annual programme of the European Youth Centres). If an NGO receives a structural grant, admin costs cannot be included in the budget of an international activity or work plan.
  • The maximum grant allocated is € 10,000.
  • The EYF budget available is € 30,000 per year.

    • one study session in the programme of the European Youth Centres (Strasbourg or Budapest) during the three-year reference period.
  • An international organisation/network is not eligible if:
