Individual project grants in the field of social entrepreneurship

Sector: Social entrepreneurship
Type: Grant
Location: Ukraine and EU
Deadline: Finished
Organiser: House of Europe

This grant will fund your personal project in the field of social entrepreneurship. A project is any initiative that will bring new experience, advanced professional skills and allow you to share your ideas with others. 

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. 

The project must involve the EU or UK. We encourage the bilateral flow of experiences, so you can both learn from European experts and share your ideas with local audiences.

  • From EUR 1,000 to EUR 4,000 to carry out your personal project 
  • Motivation to implement a project you lacked funding for
